Following the final selection round and prior to the start of the accelerator component, a nominal fee of 500 NIS will be collected from each participant.

Activities will take place in Jerusalem and in Tel Aviv. The timetable can be found under question 3.

No. Participants will not be able to work on their own projects during this program.

Participants will be divided into working groups, and each group will establish its own project focusing on smart cities. This new project will then serve as a basis for the group’s joint work and development as a startup.

The goal of this program is to gain the best skills and tools to develop a business model, conduct market research, understand financial and legal aspects, gain investments, and more.

You must each register separately, and there is no guarantee that you will be placed in the same working group.

Yes! As long as you are motivated to learn more and to gain the most up to date tools and skills related to the entrepreneurial sector, then we would love for you to join us!

Three participants who demonstrate their commitment and excel in the program will each receive personal one-on-one mentoring worth 5,000 NIS!
