Useful post! Just one comment - links in tweets use up 22 characters, whether they're longer or shorter than 22 characters: https://support.twitter.com/articles/78124-posting-links-in-a-tweet. So the length of the link doesn't impact the number of characters used for the link.

Who would have thought that holding a mic is an art? But you're so right, and the tips you give here are really useful. I'll be sharing it with our lecturers closer to WordCamp Israel.

From what I understand from people in the industry here in Israel, investors are now primarily looking for advanced-stage startups, and are no longer interested in early-stage companies. Startups must have a prototype, revenue, and proof-of-concept to even be in the game.

 

In any case, while it appears that VC investment is down overall in Israel, foreign direct investment is up - 106%. According to The UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) World Investment Report 2012, investment in Israel totaled $11.37 billion in 2011, 106% more than in 2010 (http://www.globes.co.il/serveen/globes/docview.asp?did=1000763929&fid=1725). The Israeli startup scene is vibrant and exciting, but Israel is so much more than that. Israeli innovation extends far beyond tech startups (like in medicine - did you know that Israeli scientists are the first to have cured ALS/Lou Gehrig's disease symptoms in a patient? I know, not so relevant, but totally awesome), so in the bigger picture, the Israeli entrepreneurial spirit is alive and kicking.
