Hillel Fuld Tech Vlog – Everything Start Up Nation Related
Israel has been dubbed the “Startup Nation” due to the tremendous amount of tech innovation that takes place in this otherwise tiny, embattled nation. Headlines regularly report the financial aspects of this – a couple days ago, Orbotech, an Israeli electronics manufacturer which produces systems for circuit boards and chips, was bought out by US-based manufacturer KLA-Tencor, for $3.4 billion. In other news, it was announced that eToro, an Israeli social trading platform, just raised $100 million in financing that values the company at $800 million. On top of that, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, was recently in Israel, enjoying breakfast with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and tweeting from Masada and Machane Yehuda.
But behind the headlines, there is an entire ecosystem made up of remarkable individuals, companies and stories – and the best place to get a taste of what Israeli innovation looks and sounds like, is on Hillel Fuld’s tech vlog on YouTube. Episode 1 started on April 1, 2017 and since then, Fuld has produced 167 (!!) episodes. He interviews founders, CEOs, VCs, PR and Marketing professionals, speaks to groups, attends conferences, and does so in his inimitable style while consuming a tremendous amount of meat and generating a lot of scenic drone footage. You want to know what the heart of Israeli innovation is all about? Then you have to check out Hillel’s vlog! We even appeared in it a couple of times, as per the attached videos. Enjoy!
