An Experience of a Lifetime

The InnovNation course was one of the most inspiring, engaging and educational courses on the startup industry. Israel is an amazing place, a startup nation that encourages everyone to feel optimism about the economy and business in general. The site visits that covered a variety of industries, and the fascinating people and presenters that I met throughout the 3 week course are memories that I will not forget for a long time to come. I am grateful to have been a participant on this program and highly recommend it to anyone headed into the industry.

Month of innovation in Jerusalem

"Never give up, never give in", - said once Winston Churchill in his short and inspirational speech for the students. The mindset of "never give up" is the motive of the course InnovNation and if someone needs to feed yourself with fresh ideas, get Tikun Olam concept of "repairing the World", and simply be inspired to take more risks in your life - this short and insightful program is just for you!

Great experience!!

This program was really interesting and varied. Rich of topics and rich of points to reflect, about future, about the changing of the world.

Because of the variety, the program had just one issue, that some of the sessions were difficult to understand, or could be really appreciated just by the people coming from that specific sector.

Apart from this we had the unique opportunity to see one of the most important characteristics of Israel: the country which never stops to innovate, a small country with a big big human capital, and huge potential.

Unforgettable experience!

Anything you can think of about innovation, creativity, passion, adventurous and openness can be found here in this program and in Israel. We were brought to the forefront of state-of-the-art technologies and cradle of successful businesses through many insightful visits and meetings with entrepreneurs and scientists. It offered me a glimpse of the secrets to the prosperity of this nation. Moreover, I was totally amazed by people I met here, no matter the course instructors, our classmates or even the local people, I can always get inspiration from their enthusiasm and kindness. This program demonstrate that the Jewish history and Israeli value guarantee the promising future of this country and I think that is what we Chinese should learn a lot from.
