Innovation & Entrepreneurship  

 

Technology reshapes the globe and innovations transform markets and organisations.

As emerging new technologies are now present in more products and processes, business leaders need to understand the processes surrounding its strategic use and development. From the Fintech and Blockchain revolutions to Cyber threats, innovative products increasingly create and transform markets; business leaders must master the technology development process.

 

Our entrepreneurship programs add applied aspects of entrepreneurship studies, ranging from meetings with start-ups in different stages to multinational corporations and from governments agencies to social enterprises. Our programs will give the opportunity to engage with businesses and entrepreneurs and visit innovative entrepreneurial companies.

 

These programmes aim to expose the student to the vibrant innovation-centric business ecosystems in one of the following destinations: Tel Aviv, London, Nairobi, Stockholm, Helsinki and Seoul.  Participants will be able to explore the innovation-oriented businesses in the different stages of their development from idea to billion-dollar company while at the same time gaining an understanding of the supporting role played by venture capitalists, government, incubators and established technology companies.
