Business and Entrepreneurship in the Start-Up Nation

Tel Aviv University

Dubbed one of the most innovative cities in the world, Tel Aviv is an amazing environment in which to study business, innovation and entrepreneurship in depth. Beyond Tel Aviv, the State of Israel has more venture capital per capita and more startups than any other country in the world. Historically, Israeli innovation and entrepreneurship has brought the world so many important things including: jump drives; instant messaging; cherry tomatoes; drip irrigation; the world’s smallest video camera that can be swallowed for internal medical examinations; and so much more. But how do you transform an idea into a successful business? How do creativity and innovation translate into entrepreneurship? In this dynamic summer program, students will gain valuable insight into the many dimensions and steps of the entrepreneurial process, from the birth of a creative thought all the way to product completion and market. In addition to coursework, cultural evening activities and overnight excursions around the country are offered by our Student Life Team; these activities and excursions are included in the price of tuition. Past excursions have included such places as to the North of Israel, the Dead Sea and Jerusalem. Past evening activities have included walking tours of Jaffa, graffiti tours in Tel Aviv, and night tours of Caesaria. Precise dates, times and other details for these activities and excursions will be announced closer to the program start date.
