Entrepreneurs at heart but haven’t found the right platform?

Got a brilliant idea but are missing the correct tools?

Starter is offering an acceleration program for students!

For the past four years,  Starter has launched the entrepreneurial program at Ben Gurion University. The program accompanies student entrepreneurs on the way to pursuing their ideas, providing advice in the business and technological fields with professional and personal support by mentors.

 

The accelerator program takes place on weekly meetings over the course of two months, where along with support from the mentors, the participants will be connected to the activity in the local and global startup scene- through lectures, visits and workshops by startups, venture capital funds, and key influencers in the innovation industry.

 

At the end of the program, a Demo Day will take place in front of investors and potential partners in order to link the participants’ startup to the outer world, on their way to success. Your journey to the innovation world starts with us
