|Entrepreneurship & Innovation: The Israel High-Tech Experience|
Spreenkler Welcomes Uzi de Haan, Professor of Industrial Engineering and Management at TECHNION - Israel Institute of Technology
Special Spreenkler Meetup Presentation by Professor Uzi de Haan: Economic Growth through Entrepreneurship and Innovation; Key Factors for Success: The Israel High-tech Experience
The success of the high-tech sector in Israel is an interesting success story for economic growth based on innovation and entrepreneurship. Since the 1990s, growth of Israel's GDP has been driven by the high-tech sector. Though the total dollar amount spent on R&D nationally in Israel is low in absolute terms, R&D makes up 4.8% of Israel's total GDP - the highest per capita figure in the world. Even further, Israel is second to only the Silicon Valley area in terms of venture capital start-up investment.
Uzi de Haan is an industry veteran having broad experience with innovation and management practices. His main interest is in Entrepreneurship and Strategic Management. During his visit, Professor de Haan will speak on the entrepreneurship process and in particular how discovery, opportunity recognition and evaluation are key for efficient technology transfer from research universities to industry.
This is a free event!
