Every year on Israel’s Independence Day Calcalist releases a ranking of the country’s top 50 most promising startups. To assemble this list, Calcalist approached many of the country’s most prominent investors, advisors, and entrepreneurs. We asked them which are the fastest-growing companies and which are the most profitable. We asked which companies enjoyed the biggest momentum in the past year, and which had the highest chance of making a meaningful business step in the coming year. The final list was assembled based on an analysis of this survey and on the insights of Calcalist’s tech writers and editors, who have a deep knowledge of the inner workings of Israel’s tech ecosystem.
