Doing Business in Israel

When Israel is mentioned, you probably think at first of Jerusalem, the religious centre for Christians, Muslims and Jews.

But Israel is much more than that and offers enormous business opportunities for entrepreneurs in various fields.

We highlight two that deserve special attention and are interesting for Dutch entrepreneurs:


Israel uses Cutting-Edge Technology  in Agriculture. As the world population grows, smart solutions for better agriculture and safer food storage are essential. Since 2004 R&D expenditure in Israel has accounted for 17% percent of the agricultural budget.

Some examples of the cutting edge agricultural technology:

  • Israeli drip and micro-irrigation solutions have rapidly spread worldwide. The newest models are self-cleaning and maintain uniform flow rate regardless of water quality and pressure.
  • Thermal imaging is used for water status mapping of crops, based upon the correlation between the water status of foliage and its temperature.
  • Netting of different colours is used for plant growth control
  • Breeding of beneficial insects and mites for biological pest control, bumblebees for natural pollination in greenhouses and open fields, and sterile fruit flies to control this major pest in fruit trees.
  • Generation and use of unique software to help producers grow fruits and vegetables, raise poultry and dairy cows, manage vineyards and make olive oil
  • Development of strains of potatoes that thrive in hot, dry climates, and can be irrigated by saltwater
  • Development of reusable plastic trays to collect dew from the air, reducing the water needed by crops or trees by up to 50 percent.

High-Tech and unicorns

In February 2022, Bloomberg reported over 1,000 unicorns globally and more than 500 of these companies became unicorns over the course of 2021 alone. Israel has more unicorns per capita than any other country, it accounts for 8% of the global unicorns, but for just 0,1% of the global population.

Israeli high-tech covers all spheres of life, from technologies that protect computers and smart phones, to digital medicine for innovative patient treatment.

Tel Aviv is renowned as the start-up hub.

Reason enough for Dutch companies to do business with and Israel!

If the working relationship between employers and employees is not as it should be, things are often not going well in the company itself, and that is not beneficial for the company either. But on the opposite side of the coin, a company can move mountains if its team is enthusiastic.
International business is extremely attractive - it expands the market and offers almost limitless opportunities. But working with a party in another country also brings unknown legal risks that can significantly affect your profits if you do not make proper preparations in advance.
Companies that buy, sell, transport or produce something nationally or internationally have to deal with commercial law - among other things, with the rules on entering into or terminating contracts, but also with the rules on non-performance, liability and compensation.
Tenancy law has never been as high on many entrepreneurs' agendas as during the Covid pandemic and the government-mandated closures of the hospitality, retail and cultural sectors. The rents stipulated in the leases proved unattainable and the lucky few tenants were offered temporary rent reductions by their landlords.
International Private Law (IPL) is an area of law that plays an important role in cross-border (international) matters. This area of law determines, among other things, which international court is competent, which law is applicable, but also whether a foreign judgment is eligible for recognition and enforcement in the Netherlands and, of course, vice versa.
Business law regulates the delicate balance between the entrepreneur's freedom to conduct his business as he sees fit and the legal regulation of his activities - their rights and obligations.
