Tel Aviv Stock Exchange -at the Taglit Innovation Center

We hear all the time, why doesn’t Israel promote the fantastic work they do in technology  – well, they do.  This amazing Center is not to be missed. The Center is located in the heart of Tel Aviv in the Stock Exchange’s newly renovated building.

Israel is widely known as the “Start-up Nation” and is recognized as a major player in the fields of innovation, R & D and entrepreneurship. Taglit-Birthright Israel built the “State of Mind” Innovation Center in partnership with The Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange. The exciting and cutting-edge Innovation Center allows you to learn about the new advancements Israeli Start-Ups are making in different fields, such as science, medicine, security, space and more. The guide we had was fantastic, knowledgeable, energetic and proud of Israel’s accomplishments.

 The exhibition was divided into various groups, agriculture, Science, Safety and Security, Transportation, Health and Space.  You may be familiar with some of the Start Up’s.  All we can say is WOW – very impressive!
