The Michigan Israel Business Bridge (MIBB) is a non-profit 501(c)6 organization established to facilitate business and investment opportunities between Michigan and Israel for their mutual economic benefit. MIBB brings new business to Michigan and creates jobs by encouraging Israeli businesses with new technologies to establish their North American business centers in Michigan.
Israel partners with Michigan because:
Michigan has top universities, world class advanced manufacturing facilities, a highly productive work force, access to the largest bodies of fresh water in the world, and shares an international border.
Michigan, the hub of the U.S. and global auto industries, is forging into the new economy with emphasis on the same competitive-edge technologies (life sciences, homeland security, alternative energy, etc.) Moreover, Michigan offers Israel advantages such as collaboration with world-class research institutions (including University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Wayne State University and Lawrence Technological University), an abundance of fresh water, advanced and precision manufacturing facilities, as well as access to world markets via the St. Lawrence Seaway and a major international airport. more
Michigan partners with Israel because:
Israel is a world leader in technology development and innovation, has top universities, and has a diversified manufacturing base.
Israel has 3,000 high-tech companies centered on life sciences, homeland security, alternative energy, water technology and agro-technology to name but a few. Israel has more engineers and scientists per capita than any other country in the world. It has the third highest number of U.S. patents per capita as well. And, Israel has preferred trade status with the United States, making it the perfect global partner. That is why the first international investment that Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. made was in Israel’s Iscar Corporation. more
