Why do Israeli start-ups have a far higher probability of success and attract more venture capital than start-ups in other parts of the world?

My guest Uri Adoni says, ‘That it’s all about Chutzpah’. So, what is Chutzpah and what are its secret rules that increase success? How has it contributed to the success of so many start-ups including Apple?

I recently shared a stage with Chris, speaking at a Business Growth Conference in Mayfair, London.Chris had a tough job as the final speaker at the end of the afternoon, following a series of speeches from highly experienced conference speakers.The organisers were delighted with Chris – he did a splendid job reminding the audience that they only had themselves to blame if they left that conference and failed to take appropriate action.
