ID² is an exclusive three day gathering which will bring together 70 young innovators, entrepreneurs and international development professionals from Israel and all over the world. Held for the second year, ID² will promote and inspire an in depth engagement with 'Entrepreneurship for Development'.
ID² will encourage and empower the participants to use their experience in innovation and entrepreneurship to meet the needs of developing countries and to position Israel as a leading provider of solutions for the developing world, promoting Israel from the 'Start Up Nation' to the 'Development Start Up Nation'.
Following an application process, a diverse range of professionals will be selected to bridge the world of entrepreneurship and international development.
Participants will be challenged to draw on their personal experience to tackle the world's most pressing development challenges and achieve sustainable development. ID² will provide participants with the opportunity to become leaders in this field and position Israel as the 'Development Start-Up Nation'.
