The Jewish Innovation Economy: An Emerging Market for Knowledge and Social Capital is based on the 2010 Survey of New Jewish initiatives which identified Jewish nonprofit startups, defined as autonomous or independent non-commercial initiatives ten years old or younger. The current wave of innovation, both within the established Jewish world and outside it, has been fed by a number of factors, including advances in technology, changes in identity and shifts in communal priorities. That confluence of conditions and resources has sparked a Jewish startup sector that in North America has a combined economy consisting of nearly $200 million per year.
