Four companies are in the life sciences, three in communications, and one each in cleantech, information security and hardware.
Ten Israeli start-ups made the “Red Herring” 2007 Europe 100 list. The UK had the largest number of promising start-ups, with 24; followed by Germany (14), France (13), and Israel. Next are Switzerland (seven), the Netherlands (five), and Ireland (four).
