Israel Lab Recap

During my time in Israel, I was exposed to a work environment that I was not used to. Coming from the regimented world of law enforcement where chain of command is strong and job security is stable, it was interesting to see how people were flocking towards the tech startups over some of the more established technology companies like Facebook or Microsoft. There is an obvious higher risk tolerance for Israelis than many other countries.

I learned that there is a dichotomy in society between the the funding for those in tech and those pursuing other business ventures. Israel should diversify its economy to ensure that everyone has a strong opportunity to participate.

Lastly, I am very grateful for the opportunity to participate in Israel Lab. I will surely take the most useful lessons and try to incorporate them back home.
