Start-up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle Paperback – September 7, 2011 by Dan Senor (Author), Saul Singer (Author)
- Reviews (0)
START-UP NATION addresses the trillion dollar question: How is it that Israel– a country of 7.1 million, only 60 years old, surrounded by enemies, in a constant state of war since its founding, with no natural resources– produces more start-up companies than large, peaceful, and stable nations like Japan, China, India, Korea, Canada and the UK?
With the savvy of foreign policy insiders, Senor and Singer examine the lessons of the country’s adversity-driven culture, which flattens hierarchy and elevates informality– all backed up by government policies focused on innovation. In a world where economies as diverse as Ireland, Singapore and Dubaihave tried to re-create the “Israel effect”, there are entrepreneurial lessons well worth noting. As Americareboots its own economy and can-do spirit, there’s never been a better time to look at this remarkable and resilient nation for some impressive, surprising clues.

A Quick Start Guide to Cloud Computing: Moving Your Business into the Cloud (New Tools for Business)0 out of 5
The latest jargon in the digital world, “cloud computing” leaves many small-business owners scratching their heads. At its simplest, cloud computing enables businesses to do away with servers and much of their other IT hardware by running their software online. Web-based email programs like Yahoo or Hotmail are examples of cloud-based applications; Microsoft is making its entire Office suite available free in the cloud; Google and others also have productivity suites in the cloud.
Dr. Williams eschews the jargon and marketing hype generated by IT vendors and helps business owners think clearly about how cloud computing could help improve their business. He addresses fears related to data security and business continuity and also examines how cloud computing can impact a business’s carbon footprint. Case studies explain how businesses such as Dell and The New York Times have used cloud computing to their advantage.
