From start-up to scale-up: Israeli high tech in the UK
Excerpts and salient points ~
+ There is no question that the UK market is a key component in Israeli companies’ overseas strategy, and a key foothold to global expansion.
On 26th June, UK Israel Business (UKIB) is bringing some of Israel’s most exciting scale-up companies to London for a half day Summit hosted in partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Each year UKIB carefully curate the companies invited to present on the basis of the impact it believes they will have over the next decade and beyond. In attendance will be Israel’s most disruptive companies a cross AI, Big Data, BlockChain, Cyber Security, e-commerce, HealthTech, Quantum Computing.
+ With most of the world’s banks having a presence in London, the UK is probably the only global location where companies can sell to banks from the US, Europe, UK and Asia all in one city. London is a global FinTech Hub and Israeli FinTech and innovation particularly around security, fraud and payments is playing a key role.
+ The British and Israeli high-tech eco-systems are highly complementary. Israel is seen as the ‘Silicon Valley for the rest of the world’, with a highly skilled workforce developing deep technology for a global market. Whilst companies like Facebook and Google are growing their engineering base in the UK, we see a significant number of foreign technology companies use the UK firstly for their sales and marketing operations.
