Israel Entrepreneurship Initiative 2016

Professor Bruce Bachenheimer, Executive Director of the Entrepreneurship Lab, traveled to Israel to promote the Israel Entrepreneurship Initiative in partnership with the MIT Enterprise forum of Israel at Tel Aviv University from May 15, 2016 to May 20, 2016. In addition to promoting the program, Professor Bachenheimer participated in numerous entrepreneurship events, including delivering guest lectures on 'Entrepreneurship by the Book' (Tel Aviv University), 'Contemporary Trends, Thinking & Tools in Entrepreneurship' (TRI/O Tech Technology Entrepreneurship School) and 'Intrapreneurship' (The Academic College of Tel Aviv-Yaffo), a Pace Alumni Reception, and an ‘Entrepreneurship at the Bar’ Meetup. He also visited a number of accelerators, including The Junction and SOSA, and companies including Voiceitt, Gencell and Ecomotion.
