To cope with a population influx after the fall of the Soviet Union, Israel’s flagging economy turned to a new growth engine: technology. Powered by heavy government and foreign investment, Israel has developed into a “startup nation” with high-tech industries fueling economic growth since 2000 by building a healthy ecosystem that is now benchmarked by Korea.

Yozma Group founder and Chairman Yigal Erlich, one of Israel’s most prominent investors, is widely credited as the founding father of its venture capital industry. And the Israeli investment company sees potential in Asia’s booming startup scene. It wants to foster local talents to have global mindsets so they can reach the U.S., European and Southeast Asian markets in particular.

The Yozma Group formally opened its first Asian startup campus in Pangyo, South Korea, this year as a base camp for expansion in the region.

N3Con 2016 welcomes Erlich for a special Q&A to speak on Asia’s tech landscape, emerging mobile and media innovations, and how it all can be applied to media and journalism.
