With more than 700 early-stage startups, and as many as 5,000 overall, it is no surprise that Tel-Aviv has been ranked second only to Silicon Valley as a leading tech community. In SILICON WADI, we follow four Israeli startup teams for two years as they sacrifice their families, their friends, and their bank accounts to pursue their startup dreams. From an idea on a napkin to hitting the jackpot, we join them on a fascinating and funny journey that intimately reveals how the 'High-Tech Nation' really works.
