Solution Nation introduces readers to 62 of Israel’s most enterprising companies, all of which are developing solutions directed towards providing rescue and relief to the world’s most disadvantaged people.

Just a few of the solutions these companies are bringing to the market are directed towards preventing amputations; growing leg bones longer so that children afflicted with dwarfism can stand taller; reducing the risk of auto accidents; vanquishing influenza; diagnosing cervical cancer with smartphones; purifying water; removing mercury from the air; generating water from the air; transforming carbon dioxide into electricity; generating electricity from ocean waves; providing an alternative power source for Africans reliant on deadly kerosene; combating mosquito-borne diseases; preventing fruit flies from destroying mangoes in India; rescuing people from burning buildings; triangulating human trafficking on the high seas; helping the blind see; and, enabling the paralyzed to stand and regain mobility.

The stories of the dozens of featured companies are presented in an engaging and educating manner. Included in every profile is a rich background of the problem being tackled by the featured company, insight into the innovative solution developed by the company, and a list of brutally challenging questions investors might wish to pose to the management teams. Written by an analyst with more than 20 years of experience and the author of Business Model Validation, tremendous scrutiny is applied to each company’s business model and likelihood of achieving commercial success. Written largely with the interests of analysts, investors and deal-makers in mind, Solution Nation should help readers further refine their processes for assessing addressable market opportunities, vet groundbreaking technologies and pose penetrating questions to management teams. A discussion of how Solution Nation came to fruition - including issues such as how the featured companies were selected - is provided in Appendix C of Solution Nation.
