Israel is a small country with few natural resources. Early on, its founding fathers, most notably Chaim Weizmann, the country’s first president, discovered human intelligence and science as key factors for Israel’s successful development. Today, Israel is one of the most innovative countries in the world and has an excellent reputation as a leading high-tech and start-up nation.
