Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Motorola Solutions Chairman and CEO Greg Brown, who announced the establishment of an innovation center in Israel that will deal with cyber, analytics, mobile and the Internet of Things.
Motorola Solutions noted that it views its Israeli branch as a strategic asset and that the establishment of the aforesaid center expresses its continued long-term commitment to Israel and Israeli industry, which began in the 1970’s with the establishment – in Israel – of the company’s first development center outside North America. This will entail the recruitment of additional workers from Israel’s talent pool and express the deepening of the company’s commitment to the start-up nation. To this end, the company intends to increase its investment in Israel by establishing the innovation center that will produce new technological developments for export to the entire world.
Motorola Solutions believes that this is yet another opportunity to link up with the innovation of the start-up nation and leverage the outstanding local talent.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu:
"You’re in the right place in the right country in the right business. That’s a very good match.
I hope that other multi-national companies in the development of technologies come to Israel because they’ll benefit.
And it’s good to see you again."
Motorola Solutions Chairman and CEO Greg Brown:

"We’re thrilled to be here. It’s great to see you, as always a dear friend.
The primary reason for my visit, among other things, is to tell you that I think there’s ways we can deepen our partnership – specifically, around an innovation center.
When we think about additional PhDs, data scientists, hi-tech resources around analytics and cyber, Motorola wants to put more resources here in Israel. This is an outstanding area for innovation, technology incubation, joint venture investment
What we have decided to do is that in addition to the US, specifically Silicon Valley, we will invest in start-up companies here in Israel, emerging nascent technologies, next-generation, that I think will allow us to differentiate our solutions and technologies and strengthen the competitive effectiveness of Israel."
