“Beersheba is an ancient and storied city in Israel’s Negev desert. The biblical city, which is often called the capital of the Negev, was long viewed as a distant and sleepy city, far removed from the hustle and bustle of Tel Aviv.
For many outside of Israel, this perception of the Startup Nation being limited to the center of the country and the Tel Aviv metro still persists. But any visit to Beersheba puts the lie to this idea with the first glimpse of all the construction cranes dotting the landscape. The city is thriving, and this is due in no small part to the presence of the tech startups there. Beersheba is emerging as a thoroughly modern center for tech innovation, and there are a number of reasons why.”
“…as it seems, the startup scene in Beersheba is no mere desert mirage, but a full fledged tech ecosystem focusing on anything from med-tech to the way we use the internet. The strongly supported hub is not just a “cyber” capital, but an all around tech scene, with an exciting future ahead of it.”
