The New York Times (front page): “Weiner’s Exit Sets Off a Race to Be Israel’s Better Friend”

Pace made the front page of Tuesday’s New York Times, where Chris Malone, prominently identified as an associate professor of political science at Pace, was quoted saying the forthcoming race to replace Congressman Anthony Wiener “will be a one-upsmanship on who is more pro-Israel.” At the end of the article, Malone also provided a second mention of Pace and the closing “kicker”: “Dr. Malone, the Pace political scientist, predicted that other issues would indeed emerge in the campaign, but said the importance of the Jewish vote would remain.

“There’s bigger fish to fry,” he said, “as long as they’re fried kosher.”

April 12 – Israel: Land of Tech Promise – More Firms Listed on NASDAQ than Any Country Outside U.S.

Monday, April 12th, Pace announces the winners of its seventh annual Business Plan Competition.

PACE UNIVERSITY MEDIA ALERT – MONDAY, APRIL 12 at 5:30 PM

Entrepreneurship@Lubin in association with the MIT Enterprise Forum of New York City examines factors leading to the phenomenal success of technology entrepreneurship in Israel.

• TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN ISRAEL … A magnet for venture capital investment, Israel has more companies listed on the NASDAQ than any country outside the United States, more than all of Europe or all of Asia combined. Per capita, Israel has the largest government and private sector investments in R&D and number of engineers in the world. The nation has produced firms such as Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (valued at $37 billion), ISCAR (the first enterprise that Warren Buffett ever bought overseas), and Check Point Software (used by 100% of Global 100 companies). Technology giants such as IBM, Microsoft, Intel, HP, Motorola, Cisco, GE, Google, Alcatel, Samsung, LG, Phillips, Nokia and Siemens have R&D and regional business centers in Israel. All of this in a country of 7 million people, only 60 years old, with virtually no natural resources and in a constant state of war.
