Innovation is Our Natural Resource

Innovation is the most valuable resource for the State of Israel, serving as a national asset crucial to economic prosperity. Strengthening the innovation ecosystem is the mission of the Israel Innovation Authority, which seeks to further develop and support technological innovation in Israel through various support programs.

The Israel Innovation Authority provides a variety of practical tools and funding platforms aimed at addressing the dynamic and changing needs of the local and international innovation ecosystems.

With deep knowledge and understanding of the unique challenges facing Israeli companies and entrepreneurs, these tools and programs are based on each company’s specific stage of development and needs. These include programs for early stage entrepreneurs, mature companies developing new products or manufacturing processes, academic groups seeking to transfer their ideas to the market, multinational corporations interested in Israeli technology, Israeli companies seeking new markets abroad, and manufacturing companies seeking to incorporate innovative and advanced technologies into their businesses.

Due to the wide range of clients and their varying needs, diverse support tools have been developed over the years. The Authority is working to enhance and adapt these tools to its clients’ needs, making them more accessible via a new internal structure focused on targeted innovation divisions. Each division offers a unique “toolbox” of customized and comprehensive incentive programs designed to address the changing and dynamic needs of the division’s primary clients. These divisions likewise serve as a launch pad for successful technology projects, providing entrepreneurs and companies with the most relevant program for them to realize and implement their innovative ideas, develop their products, and secure private investment.

An innovation ecosystem is a complex economic system that changes very rapidly. In order to serve our clients in the best possible way, we constantly strive to adapt our support tools to the changing demands and challenges of the hi-tech industry in Israel. Accordingly, we design and operate a variety of dedicated programs for private sector companies, promoting unique initiatives that translate policy into practical tools for the industry. This ensures the continuous development of the Authority’s operational scope, along with the expansion and strengthening of technological research and development in Israel

This brochure is designed to serve as a guide to help you understand and navigate the structure of the Israel Innovation Authority. By getting familiar with the Authority’s six Divisions and various incentive programs, you can find the right program and tools tailored just for you, helping to get your innovative ideas to the market.
