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.

Hi David,
I am just coming back from Israel and am working out a special story for a Brazilian weekly news magazine about how Israel is turning into a global player in the business of high-tech innovation.

I recently found out your blog and I am looking forward to establish contact with your network,and perhaps to get involved with the forthcoming INJO annual meeting.
