Top Global Tech Companies Are All Currently Investing in Israel - Why?

The world's top ten tech companies --Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Google, Facebook, Alibaba, Intel, Oracle, Samsung and Baidu--increasingly have something in common: they're doing mission-critical work in Israel that's core to their businesses back at HQ. Let's take a look at how this trend is playing out. The world's top ten tech companies --Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Google, Facebook, Alibaba, Intel, Oracle, Samsung and Baidu--increasingly have something in common: they're doing mission-critical work in Israel that's core to their businesses back at HQ. Let's take a look at how this trend is playing out. Amazon: Up until some six months ago, Amazon had only two lines of activity in Israel, one for its AWS business, and a drone R&D facility in Herzliya, just north of Tel Aviv, for its Prime Air business. Google several years ago bought Waze, an Israeli navigation app, in its mission to connect the online and the offline worlds.  Facebook’s acquisitions of Israeli companies, specifically Onavo and --have significantly boosted Facebook’s core business: targeted advertising. Apple’s second largest R&D center is in Israel, and it's reportedly working on processors, chips and sensors that are increasingly important to Apple's new devices and to augmented reality technology, meaning, Apple’s future beyond the phone. Intel, the world's largest chipmaker, has been deeply engaged with Israeli innovation for decades, but its recent acquisition of Mobileye, an advanced driver assistance company from Jerusalem, signals Intel's intent to be front and center in the coming autonomous vehicle revolution. Oracle has recently announced that it plans to enter the cloud infrastructure race, trying to claw away market share from Amazon, the runaway leader, and Microsoft, which is itself trying to play catch-up.
