International business advantage: Austin/Israel opportunities

Posted on 08/12/2020 by Austin Chamber

On Tuesday, August 11th, we were joined by leaders in Tel Aviv and a key tech CEO with offices in Israel and Austin to discuss why a deeper Israel/Austin relationship just makes sense.

From small technology startups to manufacturing to cyber security, the collaboration opportunities are abundant. The panel discussed how the Austin/Israel connection is often overlooked, but the talent, resources, and innovative environment make Austin a great place to grow and invest.
