Known as the startup nation, Israel offers a truly sophisticated network of major global investors, startups, and corporate innovators. Israel will not only give you the networks and resources to go global but will change your perspective on business and life — no exaggeration. Over two inspiring weeks, you’ll join a select cohort of students and early-stage founders to learn from world-class thought leaders and work hands-on in a Tel Aviv start-up environment.

We’ll be working from SOSA – one of the freshest co-working spaces in Tel Aviv. During these two weeks, you’ll get your hands dirty solving real business problems and iterating on your own startup idea. You’ll also have direct access to sought-after mentors, and make unforgettable connections with investors, accelerators, founders and professionals from both Australia and Israel.

  • Learn how to grow your idea into a scalable, profitable startup
  • Visit some of the biggest leading tech giants (Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and more)
  • Learn from the best innovative thought-leaders, founders, and investors
  • Hustle like a boss and build a personalized global network of key business relationships
  • Find your tribe and join a global network of next-gen entrepreneurs

Utterly Life Changing

The Hacker Exchange has that elusive mix of exceptional people with strategic business skills and the drive to create positive change in the world.

It was such an education to engage with exceptional people in the Startup Nation! And thanks to the Hacker Exchange, we really did get to integrate with the startup ecosystem — at Tel Aviv's startup hub SOSA, with founders, VCs, mentors, the Australian Landing Pad and even the Israel-Australia Chamber of Commerce! They really are at the cutting edge.

I had never been to Israel and didn't know what to expect. But I knew many of the greatest minds of the past century had been forged there. And now I can see how this small nation has become a global driver of innovation. Resourcefulness and progress appear to be sewn into the social and economic fabric of Tel Aviv.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would leave enough time to see more in the region afterwards, including Petra and the Dead Sea.
