Episode 52.  Start-Up Nation

When it comes to business, Australia and Israel share a tightly-knit relationship. What makes Australia such a good place for Israeli companies to expand to? That’s what my guest for today will answer. Harry Kingsley is a partner at Holding Redlich, a law firm that deals with legal matters in the areas of administrative, construction & infrastructure, and competition & consumer laws among many others. Harry discusses in detail on just what makes Australia such a prime country to expand to and why Israeli companies are quite fond of it. He shares his insights on the kind of startup companies that come here and briefly describes the ones that succeed and the ones that fail. He also explains how compliance and regulations play a role in the expansion of Israeli companies.

Don’t miss this week’s segment of Reuben’s Rant where I share why I believe using the excuse “I want to go home” by AFL players that ask for a trade is soft and unprofessional.

“Every now and again, you see a company and you think ‘Wow, I’ve never seen anything like this before.’” – Harry Kingsley
