Three years after Israel’s founding in 1948, Prime Minister David Ben Gurion helped create the Israel Bonds program as a means of financing the urgently - needed economic infrastructure of a fledgling nation.
Over the decades, creativity and out-of-the-box inventiveness in every field of endeavor - from cultivating the desert to building transportation networks, resettling immigrants and increasing export capacity - have transformed tiny Israel into a hub of financial, industrial and high-tech growth. Israel has become a global superstar in sectors such as medicine and technology.
The ground-breaking ingenuity that would later define “Innovation Israel” was foreshadowed in 1951 by the introduction of Israel Bonds - an economic model that has flourished and strengthened since its inception. Though both the Israel Bonds program and the democracy founded in 1948 share a relatively short history, they can boast an impressive economic legacy. Sales of Israel Bonds in the first year were $52 million. Sales now routinely surpass $1 billion per year.
Worldwide sales since the Bonds organization was established in 1951 have surpassed US $49 billion.
