Innovation is without question the buzzword of the year in 2010. Every tradeshow I go to and every brochure I read is talking about how to improve innovation. When most Americans think about innovation they probably imagine companies such as Google, Cisco, Apple, Nintendo and other high tech leaders in Silicon Valley or Taiwan. But few people would probably list the high tech clusters in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv on their short list of innovation centers of the world. I was recently exposed to the fascinating world of innovation and entrepreneurialism that exists in Israel through a book called Startup Nation.
