In this episode, Michael Dermer from The Lonely Entrepreneur interviews his cousin Ambassador Ron Dermer, the Israeli Ambassador to the United States. Ron explains how the struggle of Israel as a nation and the spirit of the Israeli population has led to a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship. Ron shares his view on:

  • How the constant struggle of Israel to survive as a nation had led to leadership in innovation and entrepreneurism
  • How the need to survive has spurred a culture of creativity, passion, “chutzpah” and will
  • The astonishing achievements of Israel in innovation despite its limited size and population
  • How military service adds to the capabilities of those who choose to be entrepreneurs
  • His struggle associated with the United States nuclear deal with Iran
  • His personal entrepreneurial experiences

“When Israelis hit a wall, they don’t stop. When you are facing serious threats with limited resources, when you hit a wall, you figure a way underneath it, around it or over it.”
