Spend your summer in the Start-Up Nation and learn how to develop a startup at the Trans-Disciplinary Innovation Program (TIP), an intensive 6-week international entrepreneurship program at the Jerusalem School of Business Administration in cooperation with the Asper Foundation focusing in 2021 on global health issues as an opportunity to make substantial impact while building a business minded venture.

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.

At TIP, you will sharpen your creative thinking skills to develop new venture ideas and experience the process of turning an idea into a product. During the process, you will learn today’s leading entrepreneurial methodologies, such as Design Thinking and Lean Launchpad, how to pitch to investors, meet industry leaders, visit the hottest companies and startups in Israel, develop the first stages of a startup and more.

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.

TIP will inspire and empower you to apply your acquired knowledge to create innovative solutions to complex problems.
