New study finds number of innovative projects up dramatically in last two years.
Despite the tough economic climate and increasingly competitive funding landscape, the Jewish innovation sector has grown dramatically in recent years. There are now 600 Jewish startups in North America that engage more than half a million Jews, up from about 300 startups in 2008, according to the findings of the 2010 Survey of New Jewish Initiatives produced by Jumpstart, the Natan Fund, and The Samuel Bronfman Foundation.
More than 150 of these Jewish startups – approximately 25 percent of survey respondents – have launched since 2008.
