Israeli companies interested in opening a U.S. office will find that the Southeast is a great choice in terms of cost, environment, logistics, reputation, human capital, and services. Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is the world’s busiest, offering the advantage of reaching 80% of the U.S. population within two hours and offering connecting flights between Atlanta and Tel Aviv.
Atlanta is considered to be the second most “wired” city in the world, and was rated fourth in a list of the top ten spots for entrepreneurs based on its universities, skilled labor pool, airports, quality of life, and positive entrepreneurial climate. According to AeA, Atlanta has shown the second highest increase in high-tech jobs in the last decade. The area’s low cost of living, efficient transportation facilities, comfortable weather, and large Jewish and Israeli community have attracted over 40 Israeli companies including Tescom, Jacada, ooVoo, Maytronics, Amdocs, Veritas, Given Imaging, Fundtech, Baran, Alpha Omega, Trig Medical, Opgal, Precyse Technologies, and more.
In addition to Atlanta, Israeli companies have chosen to locate operations in other centers of the Southeast covered by Conexx. North Carolina is now home to almost 20 Israeli companies including HCL Cleantech, Syfan, Polygal, Albaad, Arkal, PalZiv, Avgol, Radware, Sapiens, and more. South Carolina is headquarters for EVS, Scopus Security, ScanMaster, and Lifestone. Alabama hosts Motorika and Elbit. Mississippi has two significant operations of Israel Aerospace Industries. Tennessee is home to WAVES, Delek, MAG, and Active Implants. (See additional information by clicking on Israeli Companies in the Southeast.)

Headquarters services include Executive Search, Commercial Space, Relocation, Legal, Accounting, Finance, Insurance, Market Consulting, Human Resources, Banking, Housing, and Hospitality (Jewish, Israeli, and general) to welcome Israeli employees to the community.
