Tel Aviv University is the biggest research university in Israel. There are over 26,000 students and more than 2,000 faculty members, making TAU a hub of knowledge and innovation.
StarTAU, Tel Aviv University's Entrepreneurship Center, was established in 2009 in order to serve Israel's aspiring entrepreneurs, specifically focusing on TAU students and alumni.
StarTAU is a non-profit organization which assists businesses and entrepreneurs from a variety of business fields including: internet ventures, bio-tech development, mobile applications, low-tech ventures, patent licensing, and more.
StarTAU has allocated a great deal of resources to education by offering lectures, conventions, courses, and workshops. These educational sessions are taught by leading business people who have passion to help aspiring entrepreneurs.
