HUJI Innovate: The Hebrew University Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship
HUJI-Innovate, the Hebrew University Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, serves as a platform to encourage and assist students, faculty and alumni to develop their innovation and entrepreneurship skills. We also serve as a catalyst for venture creation processes to solve real-world problems.
For us at HUJI-Innovate, Entrepreneurship is a mindset, it is the ability to identify challenges and create solutions. We believe that everyone is born with an entrepreneurial spirit and can generate new ideas to drive impact.
We operate in 3 parallel tracks - promoting entrepreneurial culture and community (using events, clubs, workshops, festivals, conferences and competitions), developing and running academic courses (developing a minor degree) and extracurricular programs (OPEN Venture creation pre-accelerators) and managing acceleration programs for new ventures. These activities create a nexus point between academia and the world of innovation and entrepreneurship.
