The presence of Saul Singer at INNOPOLIS is a token of the driving force which the National Government wishes to attach to the presence of “Risk Capital” in Ecuador.
Saul Singer, co-author of the Best Seller, Start Up Nation was invited to Ecuador in order to participate in the INNOPOLIS forums organized by the Coordinating Ministry of Production, Employment and Competitiveness (MCPEC), which took place at Yachay, the City of Knowledge.
Singer, jointly with Dan Senor, attained worldwide recognition and appreciation for their book that describes the story of the economic miracle that took place in Israel. Sagaciously, these experts in foreign politics examine the lessons learned by a country that developed government policies favoring innovation. According to the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation (NASDAQ).The book reveals the key issues that catapulted Israel into becoming the third country having the largest number of businesses.
Israel promotes entrepreneurship as few countries do in the world. Annually, 500 new companies are created in Israel, and these numbers attract nearly $300 million per annum of capital risk funds.
Singer has made consulting visits in Israel to firms such as: Johnson & Johnson, Proctor and Gamble, Xerox, Mars, General Electric, IBM, AT&T, Medtronic, Microsoft and Dupont. He has also met with a large number of representatives of the United States Congress and also journalists, academics and business leaders. He was editor of The Jerusalem Post editorial page, member of the editorial board for the Times in Israel and of the Vintage Investment Partners Consulting Councils, an Israeli fund, and Tevel B’Tsedek – an Israeli NGO working in Nepal, Haiti and Burundi. Before migrating to Israel, Singer was advisor to the United States Congress for Foreign Affairs at the Senate Bench Chamber and Committees.
