On September 22, Israel startup nation CEO Bibi Netanyahu pitched his “New Middle East” project at the United Nations Summit, a kind of Web Summit for nations:
With this killer feature, Hamas hackers breached the Israeli Iron Firewall, and performed a terrible ransomware attack
The Startup Nation is still scrambling several responses to this Gaza Challenge, 8th Edition (a challenge launched by Bibi himself in 2005). No response has been compelling so far.
As a startup advisor, I will review a few approaches taken by the Israel Startup Nation. In the next post, I will propose my own advice.
Flatten Hamas (HAMAS) into a shitcoin
After such historic humiliation, destruction of Hamas is a must-do for the Israel startup nation. However, this milestone will be hard to reach: Hamas is a well-prepared decentralized organization, with underground tunnels in the Gaza darknet:
The Palestinian brand attracts millions of followers around the free world, from Baghdad to Manhattan:
Raise more VC funding
To avoid a brutal crash of the Israel startup nation, angel investor Joe Biden offered an emergency package (mullahs in Iran would call Joe Biden a “satan investor”):
Change the CEO
In Tech Aviv, CEO Bibi is facing a strike: his startup team demands his resignation
No, according to their PR manager, Yuval Noah Harari. They feel a little “worried” about the existing organization chart by the HR Department, but they don’t have any alternative plan:
Change the UN Summit CEO
Israel demanded the United Nations CEO Tony Guterres to resign immediately, after comments perceived as offending
Tony will be harder to remove without breaking up the whole UN institution: his core mission is to defend the right to exist of the UN Charter. A United Nations without Charter is like a Web Summit without website.
Capitalists know better that breaking the thermometer won’t cure the fever, except in North Korea.
Annihilate the competition
Humanist Genocide Developer Danny Ayalon planned a dignified deportation for Gaza people. “Tent cities” with fast Wi-Fi will soon welcome these new digital nomads in the Sinai desert:
When startuppers don’t identify the right bottlenecks, they keep scrambling with flawed approaches. As a result, operation costs skyrocket, and ultimately, the right to exist of the startup becomes threatened.
In the next posts, I will propose my own advice for the Israel Startup Nation, as a professional startup advisor.
