Israel, though only 67 years old and with a population of over 8 million, has the highest density of tech startups in the world. Tel Aviv is the world's second leading startup ecosystem internationally, after Silicon Valley.  In 2014, Tel Aviv University was #9 in the world for universities producing American venture capital-backed entrepreneurs.

Dr. Moshe Zviran, professor of Information Systems at the Recanati Business School and Dean of the faculty of Management at Tel Aviv University, will be in conversation with Craig Snyder, President and CEO of the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia, and Daniel Pipes, President of the Middle East Forum, to discuss his work and Israel's role as a global business partner.
