Chutzpah: Why Israel Is a Hub of Innovation and Entrepreneurship


Discover the secret behind how Israel, a tiny country with the highest concentration of start-ups per capita worldwide, is raising

 generations of entrepreneurs who are disrupting markets around the globe and bringing change to the world. Tech insider Inbal Arieli goes against the common belief that Israel’s outstanding economic accomplishments are the byproduct of its technologically advanced military or the result of long-standing Jewish traditions of study and questioning.

While chutzpah has given generations of Israelis the courage to break away from conventional thinking, the Israeli concept balagan—messiness in Hebrew—is at the root of how Israelis are taught to interact with the world. Instead of following strict rules, balagan fosters ambiguity, encouraging the development of the skills necessary for dealing with the unpredictability of life and business.
