Of the 460 active Israeli Agritech companies tracked in Start-Up Nation Finder, Start-Up Nation Central's innovation discovery platform, more than 25% were founded in the last five years, and 50% over the last ten, indicating a sector which, despite its historical roots in Israel's collectivist kibbutz movement, is characterized by a boom of new companies and innovations. "Leveraging innovation and talent in the high-tech sector along with decades of experience in overcoming agriculture challenges, the Israeli Agritech sector is becoming a force to be reckoned with," said Prof. Eugene Kandel, Start-Up Nation Central's CEO.
