A Start-Up Nation for all its Citizens: High Tech Expansion into Israels Arab SocietyJul 23, 2015 8:00am
Join the Task Force in partnership with CONEXX and AJC on July 23rd at 8am for a breakfast discussion
Ihab Atalla, Head of Amdocs Galilee and EMEA Regional Development
In 2013, Amdocs (NASDAQ: DOX) became the first major Israeli technology company to open a branch in Nazareth, Israel’s largest Arab city. Since, Amdocs has been a leading employer of Arab citizens in Israel’s booming high tech industry—an industry still out of reach for most of the country’s sizable minority.
Why would an internationally traded public company with offices world-wide expand into Israel’s Arab society? What has been the impact of opening a branch in Nazareth’s newly established high-tech industrial park? Join us to hear from Ihab Atallah, Head of Amdocs Galilee and one of the most senior Arab high tech professionals, about the formation of Israel’s next Silicon ‘Wadi’.
