Experience an accelerated entrepreneurial digital journey in the center of the world-renowned startup nation where entrepreneurs are developing game-changing ventures that are globally impacting many industries. The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is a key player in Israel’s vibrant startup ecosystem and has contributed to many of the country’s startup successes.

You will do a deep dive into today’s most influential technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Bio-Engineering, and the Internet of Things (IoT), and understand their power to transform the health industry.
