Today's "wow!" moment...

Comparing absolute numbers, Israel — a country of just 7.1 million people — attracted close to $2 billion [in 2008] in venture capital, as much as flowed to the UK, Germany and France combined. (…) In addition to boasting the highest density of start-ups in the world (a total of 3,850, one for every 1,844 Israelis), more Israeli companies are listed on the Nasdaq than all companies from the entire European continent.

From Start-up Nation, the story of Israel economic Miracle, hat tip Frédéric Filloux.
