Behind Israel's high-tech miracle stands the Technion - Israel's powerhouse of innovation.
Technion - Israel Institute of Technology is Israel's first university, founded in 1912. It is credited with conceiving, founding and shaping the high-tech nation of the modern State of Israel.
Home to three Nobel Laureates, the Technion's ability to generate new ideas and translate them into real-world applications has earned it a global partnership with Cornell University and the right to help establish the Technion Cornell Institute of Innovation (TCII) in New York City - a game-changing, global, academic center slated to transform the economy of New York.
Technion graduates head 59 of 121 Israeli companies on the NASDAQ, and these companies have a combined market value of over $28 billion. More than 70 percent of Technion graduates are employed in the high-tech sectors that drive Israel's economic growth. Today, Israeli companies headed by Technion graduates employ 85 percent of Israel's technical workforce.
Companies including Apple, Intel, Google, Microsoft, IBM, Qualcomm, Broadcom, Yahoo! and Hewlett-Packard have set up operations around Technion City where they enjoy active collaborations with Technion's outstanding faculty, students and graduates.
In partnership with a strong community of incubators, private investors, venture capitalists, angel groups and entrepreneurs, the Technion's technology transfer transfer arm, T³, files an average of 80-100 new patent applications annually and has nurtured scores of innovative start-ups in sectors such as cleantech, cell therapy, drug delivery, nanotechnology, Internet technology and more.To find out more about emerging technologies from Technion, contact the T³ team.
