CEO of global equity crowdfunding platform OurCrowd hit the screens of CNBC this past week to talk up Israel innovation and the startup ecosystem. Apparently over $920 million was invested in Israeli startups in the 2nd quarter alone. The first half of 2014 stands at $1.6 billion according to Medved.

Medved states that Israel as a nation has pretty much been fighting wars since the country was founded and that the population pretty much takes it in stride. He also notes the market is up since the most recently conflict started. Watch the video below.
