Expert: Medical devices hugely profitable ‘dark horse’ of Israeli high-tech

March 22, 2012

While Israeli technology successes in networking, security, and software applications garner the most attention in the local and international press, the medical device industry is sort of a “dark horse,” said one expert, D. Todd Dollinger, chairman and CEO of the Trendlines Group. That industry attracts less attention in the media, Dollinger said, but even so, it’s a very successful and profitable dark horse.

Trendlines is an investment group based in northern Israel that runs the Misgav Venture Accelerator, which concentrates on developing medical device, pharma, and biotech start-ups, and as head of Trendlines, Dollinger has worked with dozens of Israeli medical device start-ups.
