ISRAEL - Six Israeli Startups Named as Tech Pioneers

Arno Froese

The World Economic Forum named six Israeli start-ups to its 20th cohort of Technology Pioneers, identified as cutting-edge companies poised to have a significant impact on business and society.

The 100 start-ups chosen annually by the WEF are invited to participate in the Switzerland-based organization’s workshops, events and high-level discussions.

The Israeli start-ups joining the Technology Pioneers community are factory digitalization firm 3d Signals, slaughter-free meat developer Aleph Farms, cybersecurity team Morphisec, mass-transportation mobility platform Optibus, plant vision-technology start-up Prospera and industrial artificial-intelligence company Seebo.

All the start-ups selected from the Middle East and North Africa by WEF are based in Israel.

“This year’s class of Technology Pioneers are improving society and advancing their industries around the world,” said Susan Nesbitt, head of the WEF’s Global Innovators Community. “These are the companies that think differently and stand out as potential game-changers. We’re looking forward to the role they’ll play in shaping the future of their industries.” 

More than one-quarter of the 100 chosen start-ups are female-led, a WEF statement emphasized, representing more than double the industry average.

Arno's commentary

This is part of the unending, progressive globalism. Israel, as this report identifies, is the only nation selected by the World Economic Forum in all the Middle East and North Africa. It is not surprising to see Israel achieving goals other nations cannot even dream of. 

Success in olden days was conditional; namely, to observe and do the law. Before the Israelites entered the Promised Land, we read the following in Joshua 1:8-9: “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” We know that Israel failed repeatedly. Israel broke the law multiple times. That, however, did not invalidate God’s promise to Israel, for Jeremiah 31:31-32 proclaims: “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD.”
