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.
