Injo interview in Globes
Globes, the biggest business daily in Israel, recently ran an interview with me on Injo.
The interview on was made by Globes staff writer Yael Gaoni. The unedited interview in English is here. The published story in Hebrew is here (online layout) and here (newspaper layout)
Globes pioneered startup journalism in the nineties. In a time when all major business dailys in the world found it unthinkable to routinely cover anything else than listed companies, Globes set up a solid daily coverage of the Israeli startup sector and its extension into foreigh markets, such as Silicon Valley and Europe. Reporting on new startups and venture capital every day, they systematically built a database of Israeli startups and investors that became the standard resource for business people both inside and outside Israel, as well as putting the hightech economy on the public agenda in the late nineties. Globes startup journalism is a central part of the Israeli innovation economy, and was one of the initial inspirations for the innovation journalism initiative.
