This is a meetup for people who want to create a venture addressing the big challenges of the day but feel they lack the practical skills and network to do so.
The head of the prestigious IDCBeyond program at the Adelson School of Entrepreneurship at IDC Herzliya, will talk about the program and its goals. http://beyond.idc.ac.il/
A little bit about the IDCBeyond program:
• IDCBeyond's course structure and curriculum are based on over 17 years of learnings from the world-renowned Zell Entrepreneurship program at IDC. • The program focuses on practical, hands-on tools to support participants from the idea stage through the actual creation of a venture. • The program runs for an academic year and meets twice a week. Ideal for people who are currently employed. • IDCBeyond is done in collaboration with accomplished mentors, academics, and industry experts.
The program is divided into three phases:
o Phase 1: 21st Century Challenges and Exponential Technologies (8 weeks): Thought leaders will talk about 21st-century challenges as well as the exponential technologies used to address these challenges. The goal of this phase is for participants to come up with an idea for a venture. o Phase 2: Venture Creation (22 weeks): Participants will be taught all aspects entrepreneurial process – from ideation to turning that idea into a venture. Top faculty and industry experts and mentors accompany the students, teaching, guiding and inspiring them throughout the process. o Phase 3: Pre-Accelerator (10 weeks): Outstanding teams will have the opportunity to continue in the program’s pre-accelerator where they can further develop their ventures preparing for their first round of finance.
