On February 29, 2016 Israeli Chief Scientist Avi Hasson and the Israeli Ambassador to Canada joined Startup Canada for an evening keynote and reception on How to Build an Entrepreneurial Government. The event also launched the Canadian Entrepreneurship Institute which connects policy makers at the municipal, provincial, and federal levels with professional development training that builds entrepreneurial competencies within the public service.

Israel has one of the most innovative and entrepreneurial governments in the world. Its startup ecosystem is also one of the most advanced. In the keynote lecture, Hasson outlined Israel’s economic growth strategy, the entrepreneurial government behind it and learnings that can be adopted by Canada’s public service to build a Canadian economy that flourishes through innovation and entrepreneurship.
