Israel has become Silicon Valley’s single serious competitor. This explosion in Israel’s competitive edge would not have been possible without the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. The applied research at the university produces pioneering technologies that are translated into high-tech exports, most often by its own graduates.

Technion Business Connection

  • More than 70 percent of Technion graduates are employed in the high technology sectors that drive Israel’s economic growth.

  • The Technion is one of the “Top 10 Colleges for Tech CEOs,” according to an August 2013 report by Bloomberg Rankings. The Technion (tied for #7) is the only university outside of the U.S. on the list, which was compiled by looking at the CEOs of 250 U.S. companies with a market value of $1 billion and above, and determining the university at which those CEOs studied.

  • Nearly 96,000 graduates have launched, lead and grow Israel’s major companies, including 59 of the 121 high-tech Israeli companies on the NASDAQ. These companies originating from the Technion have a market value (as of November 2010) in excess of $28.2 billion. (figures as of 2012. Source: Technion Nation)
