The CyberSpark pavilion at a recent Cybertech conference.
The future of cyber-technology is in the Negev. And it’s already begun, as international high-tech companies flock to Beersheva to set up operations in what is fast becoming the cyber capital of the world.
On TLV1 Radio, ISRAEL21c’s Viva Sarah Press chats with Roni Zehavi, CEO of the CyberSpark Industry Initiative (a coordinating body for joint cyber industry activities with government agencies, the IDF, the public and academia); Yoav Tzruya, a partner at Jerusalem Venture Partners (JVP), and Prof. Rivka Carmi, president of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, about the unique technology ecosystem now being formed in Israel’s desert.
