Embracing Innovation: The Israeli Model Inspires Zambia’s Journey

Our CEO Uri Gabai and Senior Policy Fellow Danny Biran had the honor of presenting the Israeli innovation model and its ecosystem development over the last decades, to the President of Zambia Mr. Hakainde Hichilema, accompanied by Minister of Science and Technology Mr. Felix Mutati, Minister of Foreign Affairs Mr. Stanley Kakubo, together with Ambassador of Israel to the Republic of Zambia Ms. Ofra Farhi and a delegation of prominent Zambian officials and private sector leaders.


The meeting was highly insightful, and as reported by Lusaka Times, the President expressed that “Zambia has drawn a lot of lessons from Israel through a presentation by Start-up Nation Policy Institute on the need to incorporate technology and allow the private sector to participate in the economic development of the country”.


Excited to see Zambia’s interest in strengthening its innovation ecosystem, we at SNPI believe in the power of collaboration and knowledge sharing. Israeli experience can inspire Zambia’s ambitious journey toward innovation-driven growth.
