Yalla — it’s what Israelis say to move the conversation along or get things going. The word comes from Arabic, and it’s been fully adopted in Hebrew to communicate that eager restlessness that characterizes Israelis. The modern State of Israel was built on an ancient dream of a 3,000 year old nation that was and continues to be guided by the need to make the world a better place. That wide-eyed curiosity and optimism coupled with pragmatism continues to serve as our backbone in everything we do, and we’re in a hurry to get it done – so, Yalla!

We’re brave, bold, and ready for anything life serves us.

INNOVATIVE CREATIVE PERSISTENT PROBLEM SOLVERS RISK-TAKING ENTREPRENEURIAL RESILIENT

In Israel, almost everything is up for discussion. From a young age, Israelis are encouraged to question, challenge, and never take anything at face value.

If you can make the desert bloom, you can do anything — that optimistic outlook along with the belief that anything is possible guide Israelis in everything they do and drive Israeli innovation and other groundbreaking initiatives.

The modern State of Israel is Israel’s first startup, with octogenarians who built the state sharing their stories and serving as living examples of what it means to truly dream big. It’s no wonder that Israeli children believe that anything is possible!

Israeli culture encourages bucking trends and challenging convention, and “chutzpah” (audacity, brazenness) and the ability to stand your ground is what drives Israeli innovation and our unique form of out-of-the-box thinking.
