3 Israeli start-ups poised to disrupt business-to-business sales industry

Published date04 July 2021
As supply chains were disrupted and more interactions took place online than ever before, whatever vulnerabilities that existed were exposed in relatively short order in the weeks and months following the first wave of global COVID-19 cases.
