Leading South Florida R&D university hopes to lure Israeli companies to the Sunshine State

Florida, with 22 million residents, is the third most populous state in the nation, and its three biggest counties—Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach—also happen to host the third-largest Jewish community in the United States after New York and Los Angeles.

What better place, then, for any Israeli high-tech company hoping to expand to the US market—especially given the Sunshine State’s spectacular beaches, low taxes and proximity to Latin America?

That’s the concept behind Global Ventures, a project by the Research Park at Florida Atlantic University (FAU), one of the state’s largest institutions of higher learning.



The Research Park at Florida Atlantic University ® recently named the recipients of its 2021 Research Park Distinguished Awards.

The awards celebration will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 22 from 6 to 9 p.m. outside at The Addison, 2 East Camino Real, Boca Raton. Tickets cost $135 per person.

The annual awards recognize distinguished contributions to the Research Park at FAU’s mission to promote scientific research and development in affiliation with FAU, to foster economic development and broaden the economic base of Palm Beach and Broward counties.
