Tel Aviv, the second largest city in Israel is its economic hub and financial center. The city has often been described as a ‘flourishing technological center’ for Tel Aviv has a booming high-tech industry which is an important and influential center for research and development. The city and its satellite towns of Herzliya and Petah Tikya are home to countless domestic startups as well as local and international venture capitalist firms and it is estimated that Israel has more publicly traded companies on the Nasdaq stock market than any other country outside North America. Further it is believed that these Israeli start-ups attract more venture capital funding than any country outside North America so much so that the city of Tel Aviv is often described as ‘Silicon Wadi.’ Tel Aviv’s high tech industry today contributes greatly to the country’s export sector and technologies developed here can be found in the products of various multi-national companies in the spheres of computers, information systems, medicine, optics, consumer goods and software.

Aside from being a technological hot spot, Tel Aviv is also an important financial center of the Middle East and the city is home to the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE) which is Israel’s only stock exchange.

Tel Aviv’s White City was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003 and it consists of a cluster of nearly 4000 Bauhaus or International Style buildings which were built in Tel Aviv in the 1930’s by German Jewish architects who immigrated to Tel Aviv in an effort to escape the Nazis.
