The Workshop is made possible thanks to the international cooperation between YABT and the State of Israel, by way of Israel's Agency for Development and Cooperation (MASHAV) and the Golda Meir Mount Carmel International Training Center (MCTC). The Workshop's objective is to provide a learning platform and exchange "best practices" and policy that favor the promotion of innovative business culture. This will be given in English and led by professionals from various organizations involved in programs and public policy regarding entrepreneurship.
During two weeks the participants will be trained in both theoretical and practical sessions, dialogue with the experts exchanging their experience and lessons learnt between participants and Israeli professionals, and also, visit a variety of organizations focused on business support as well as take part in cultural and religious tours. The agenda includes topics such as: public policy development in entrepreneurships and innovation, support to spin-off entrepreneurships, funding and investment angels, women entrepreneurs; as part of the theme and objectives of the Workshop.
The participants will have the opportunity to present on the state of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in their countries, as well as the experiences and success stories from the programs and initiatives they manage in their organizations. The Workshop will provide them with entrepreneurial tools, methodologies and resources to aid with the improvement of their capacity and coverage of local, national and regional programs. Ideally, upon their return to their home countries, the participants will be able to share with others the knowledge and experience they will have gained from the Workshop.
