Israeli tech companies which benefit from US Investment

Israeli technology companies have attracted investors from all over the world, including the United States right from the Silicon Valley. Companies such as 3M, Intel, IBM, GE, Google, Oracle, US Robotics, Motorola, Cisco Systems and Microsoft to name just a few, have greatly benefited from Israeli Hi-Tech companies. The Israeli Hi-Tech market is only second to Silicon Valley in California, a place known world-wide for innovation and cutting edge technology.
Israeli companies are comprised of usually small start-up companies that focus on R&D, innovation and being able to build and design components that are faster and better, like a better switch or a faster circuit. This is important to the giant companies as these companies often have little time for the constant upgrades necessary in being able to stay cutting edge, so they tend to outsource these areas of their technology.
The population ratio of engineers and scientists in Israel is number one in the world, whereas the United States is number two in this area. This gives Israel a rich source of qualified people to run and develop small start-up technological companies that play a critical role in today’s Hi-Tech marketplace. And Israeli technology is in every facet of Hi-Tech, such as; materials, medical, medical engineering, printing, software information, software retrieval, software technologies and tools, vehicle accessories, sport and safety, incubators, biotechnology, broadcasting, CAD/CAM, equipment, control testing and security technology, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, communications equipment and software, data collection, ecology, education, machinery, laser systems, food and cosmetics, optics, and semiconductors just to name a few.
Investment in Israeli start-up companies in these fields are often done by the global industry giants, and sometimes result in taking small fledgling entrepreneurs into the international mainstream. And Israeli company core people tend to remain with their companies once acquired. These investments are also completely independent of momentary regional unrest but are based instead on the entire global economy. For example, Intel’s billion dollar plus investment was totally unaffected by the Gulf War. Israel’s market is global, not domestic.
A further example of Israeli companies who work with some of the industry giants are the Israeli firm Elscint with General Electric Healthcare, PrimeSense with Apple, DCPC with Intel, CDP Medical with Phillips Electronics and YaData with Microsoft. Israeli companies are not usually set up for mass production but fill a critical need in improving the overall products of these large giant companies, as well as providing specialty products. Japanese cellular phone manufacturing use microchips developed by the Israeli company DSPC. Northern Telecom uses technology derived from Telrad, which is another small Israeli technology company.
Investing in the Israeli technology market has proven to be a smart investment because of Israel’s extremely rich pool of engineers and scientists that have started and successfully formed partnerships with some of the largest technological giants in the industry. And this trend will only continue, as Israeli technology is on the cutting edge of the Hi-Tech global marketplace of today.
