Our Voice of the Week is Wired’s feature-length documentary Startup Nations. With the most tech startups and venture capital per capita in the world, Israel has long been hailed as The Startup Nation. Wired’s feature-length documentary looks beyond Tel Aviv’s vibrant, liberal tech epicenter to the wider Holy Land region – the Palestinian territories, where a parallel Startup Nation story is emerging in East Jerusalem, Nazareth, Ramallah and other parts of the West Bank, as well as in the Israeli cyber-security hub of Be’er Sheva.
