Israel’s role as a world leading breakthrough technology innovator spans across many areas from medical research to cyber security. The science and technology sector one of Israel’s most developed sectors, with 140 scientists for every 10,000 employees.
Israeli companies with ties to America have taken advantage of the extensive research and development tax credit available to them. One of the most effective ways to take advantage of this is for a US company to take over an Israeli based company. This has been proven in recent years with Israeli start-ups being acquired for a total $23 billion in 2017 alone.
This partnership is beneficial for both parties as it allows them to take advantage of each other’s existing production facilities and distribution networks. With the endless number of possible advantages resulting from a Israeli US collaboration, it seems likely that there could be many more mergers on the horizon.
