High Tech Ties: The Links Between Miami and Israel's High Tech
Israel Practice Co-Chair Meital Stavinsky spoke with Global Miami Magazine about the strengthening ties between the technology sectors in Israel and Miami. Ms. Stavinsky explained that throughout the past 20 years, more and more Israeli companies have established a presence in Miami, including opening their headquarters there instead of in cities like New York. The article chronicles how this has happened, the result of historical business and trade ties between the two areas as well as efforts by organizations to develop Miami's tech ecosystem and build connections with Israeli firms.
"All the stars aligned," Ms. Stavinsky said. "When I came here 20 years ago, I was looking for that tech convergence. Now, it's here...It used to be that the Israeli companies in Miami would be mostly sales offices, with minimal senior management from Israel. Now, more and more tech companies are establishing their U.S. headquarters in Miami to expand across the Americas, with senior management relocating to Florida."
