“We tend to look to the US, when it is the Israeli ecosystem that can give us the greatest lessons. It is a small market, isolated in an adverse environment, with few natural resources, which has forced them to develop in the face of the world, to be born global. Chile is a small market, isolated and protected by an impressive nature, blessed with natural resources. What do we need to get out of this level of medium development? Israel has experiences and knowledge that could open our minds to redesign our future and one channel of learning is the TAU ”, said Jennyfer Salvo.

Israel is the world’s second largest innovation ecosystem, third in knowledge and technology productivity, and fifth in business sophistication. It has the largest venture capital industry per capita, invests 4.7% of its GDP ($ 247.9 billion) in R&D and generates more than 1000 technology Start-Ups per year.

For its part, Tel Aviv University is the 8th in the world in innovation and entrepreneurship, the only non-North American university that is located in the top 15 in MBA programs and that has the highest number of graduates per capita founders of unicorns.

“We organize this international meeting because we want to promote local innovation.

Despite how well ranked Chile is in Latin America, there is still much to do to fully develop our R&D potential. And the alliance we build with Israel is on this path… it has allowed us to get much closer to our goals. For this reason, together with the Chilean Chamber of Construction, we organized the first Israel Mission where the world to come and the opportunities and challenges for Chile were analyzed ”, he added.

The second session of eMisión Israel was dedicated to the concept of “Smart City: Making cities smart, challenges and innovative solutions”, in which specialists and tenured professors from TAU spoke.
