Fintech in Israel

Despite a population of just over 8 million people, the Startup Nation continues to serve as a global ‎hub for innovation in the Hi-tech sector, specifically the FinTech vertical. In the past year alone, ‎Israeli Startups generated over $4.5 Billion in funding, and over 10% went to the growing FinTech ‎industry.

There are currently over 500 FinTech startups that reside in the country, both disrupting ‎and supporting the future of banking and the financial services industry, with this number growing on an annual basis.
