Entrepreneurship and Commerce in the Startup Nation
Israel is among the most dynamic, entrepreneurial countries in the world. How did it happen? During this trek, we will discuss the past, present and future of this remarkable country. With support from itrek, we will meet with leaders from academia, business, and government with the aim of developing deep insight into the Startup Nation. In partnership with the Adam Smith Society's chapter at Hebrew University, trek participants will have the chance to engage with future Israeli business leaders as well. Applications are open until 1/18/2019 and will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
