(Daily alert), Mar. 6, 2014)
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has been touring Silicon Valley to meet with tech leaders this week, signed a strategic pro-business partnership with California Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday. The deal will enable Israeli companies to access the California Innovation Network, a system of 16 iHub business incubators that includes clusters of research parks, university and federal labs, economic development groups and venture capital funds.
“Through this agreement, California and Israel will build on their respective strengths in research and technology to confront critical problems we both face, such as water scarcity, cyber security and climate change,” Brown said. (Fox News)
