Nazareth, Israel’s largest Arab city, is fertile ground for the Israeli hi-tech scene; global neuroscience technology firm, AlphaOmega, was born there.

Two people taking strides to surface the untapped talent in the Israeli-Arab community are Fadi Swidan, director of the Nazareth Business Incubator Center and co-founder of NazTech; and Paz Hirschmann, director of development at Tsofen, an Arab-Israeli integration non-profit.

In this episode, they discuss with host Viva Sarah Press the scale of available brainpower, as well as their vision for a local ecosystem to help push bright ideas from start-up to exit.
