The Academy for Entrepreneurial Leadership traveled to Israel in March 2011 to experience and document Israel's amazing startup community. We met with various startup companies, incubator programs, and venture capitalists to discover what makes Israel, an incredibly tiny country, so successful when it comes to new venture creation. We hope to apply what we have learned to inspire and enhance the startup community in Illinois.
This documentary feature was premiered at the Startup Illinois Dinner on May 19th, 2011. Visit business.illinois.edu/ael/illaunch/startupillinois.html for more information.
