Over 10 representatives from cyber technology businesses from Israel have visited Worcestershire, as part of an inward investment mission.

The Israeli businesses met with some of Cyber Valley’s most recognised and innovative companies as part of a three day trade mission, which took place on 20-22 March. The delegation began with a visit to the Malvern Hills Science Park where representatives from BetaDen, Midlands Cyber and the Invest in Worcestershire team discussed the unique investment opportunities that the county boasts for cyber businesses.
