Israel is home to more startups per capita than any other country, and its high-tech companies have graduated to the Nasdaq in droves, giving the nation of only 8.2 million people the third-highest number of listings on the exchange, after the much larger United States and China.

I recently discussed this phenomenon with Hillel Fuld, CMO of Zula, a provider of team communications technology, who also blogs about the Israeli tech scene and advises several other Israeli startups. Here are six important lessons for entrepreneurs around the world that we can learn from Israeli startups:

To outperform great marketing, focus on delivering an excellent product that solves a real need for customers.
Reach the right customer.
Don't let external challenges impact your moving forward.
Don't stop building
Recharge regularly
Give everyone a voice
