New Israeli TV Series Captures Four Start-ups' Bumpy Road to an Exit

A new television show, 'Silicon Wadi,' airing in Israel at the end of February, follows four start-ups as they eye the holy grail: an exit.

The seemingly easy, luxurious life of start-up entrepreneurs appeals to many Israelis who fantasize about landing an exit and then being set for life. A reality show with a similar name – "Mesudarim" ("Set") – is largely responsible for promoting that image of the good life. Yet the road to start-up stardom is a bumpy one, paved with many potholes.
