July 10, 2017 | Nearly a quarter of the technology startups that the Wall Street Journal references in its must-watch tech list are Israeli. Three of the six listed Israeli companies operate in the cyber security realm, a field that the “Startup Nation” dominates, second only to the United States. The entire list only includes a total of four cyber security startups, confirming Israel’s supremacy in the field. These companies have raised significant funds; Cybereason $100 million, Illusive Networks with $30 million, and Argus Cyber Security with $30 million thus far. The remaining three Israeli startups occupy places in the ride-sharing, fintech, and social media industries with Via, Lemonade, and Life On Air respectively. Via has raised $137 million while Lemonade has raised $60 million.
