Program Overview

Our Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Business program is one for the entrepreneurs of you out there, and especially for those of you looking to ramp up your business and entrepreneurial skillset in one of the most innovative cities in the world.

Widely regarded for its innovation - and also known as the Startup Nation – Tel Aviv is an amazing environment in which to continue your journey of discovery. With more venture capital per capita and more startups than any other country in the world, it’s hard not to soak up some of that innovation and dynamism (when you’re thinking Israeli innovation, think instant messaging; cherry tomatoes; drip irrigation; and the world’s smallest video camera that can be swallowed for internal medical examinations, and many other cool inventions).

This dynamic summer program will provide you with many invaluable insights into the numerous dimensions and steps of the entrepreneurial process; from the initial seed of a creative thought, all the way to product completion and sales. 

You’ll also take onboard some inspirational interactive learning both inside and outside the classroom, and through course-related excursions you’ll also get a first-hand view of the unique entrepreneurial spirit in Tel Aviv.

Program Highlights

  • You’ll get to examine the entrepreneur’s role in the global economy as an agent of change, and an accelerator of innovation and economic development.

  • Learn how to generate and develop ideas, and examine the various business models used to successfully drive an idea forward from an idea sketched out on a napkin to a global platform.

  • Discover the unique characteristics that make up startup companies, and their implications on development and strategy of a city, a region, a nation and the world.

  • Dive into the concept of Minimal Viable Product (MVP) and learn all about topics such as business plan writing and IP protection.

  • Learn what makes the venture capital market tick, with courses on crowdfunding, startup accelerators, incubators, venture capital funds, corporate VC, and start-up financing by investors.

  • Explore the wonders of Israel via some fascinating overnight excursions and cultural activities across the country.
