The NY-based start up StartApp Inc. did not begin in Silicon Alley. Only six months ago, it’s headquarters were in Tel Aviv where it was founded in 2010. But they said that from the very beginning, their target audience was already the United States.

Israel also have more firms on the Nasdaq than any country besides China and the U.S.
