A global strategy consulting firm conducted a study on the impact of Israeli businesses and innovation on the Massachusetts economy — only to find out that New York is one of the three top markets in the U.S. for Israeli innovation. Even though some survey respondents mentioned that they weren’t interested in NY because it seemed a too closed off and big, we aren’t really sure what this study accomplished other than giving credibility to the taunts coming from dozens of Yankee hat wearing douchebags who yell “Boston Sucks” every opportunity they get.

Also according to the survey:

  • Nearly 100 companies in Massachusetts are founded by Israelis or offer products based on Israeli technology.
  • Israeli entrepreneurs chose Massachusetts over other U.S. destinations to launch or grow their enterprises due to the deep talent pool, opportunity to be part of an industry cluster, historical relationship, and outstanding business infrastructure (research-heavy companies and those that support them).
  • California and Massachusetts remain the most popular choices for Israelis due to its industries and historical relationship. However, some less established cities like Atlanta are competitively seeking Israeli business.
