According to an article in Israel's Business Arena ("Nanotech – Too big for little Israel?", by Gilad Nass, 19 March 2002), venture capitalists in Israel are interested but rather cautious about potential investments in nanotech research and development. The article provides a useful overview of private sector activity, and includes an interview with David Solomon, CEO of Israeli investment firm 4HighTech, who describes his fundís attitude to nano-technology investments in Israel as ìinterested, but it will take time before the first investment.î
Additional background on VC interest in nanotech in Israel can be found in a Nanodot post from 11 December 2001.
Of course, pondering investment decisions in a war zone has its difficulties.
