Entrepreneurship Center: Making the Impossible Possible

Is it possible to teach people to recognize “the next big idea”? Is it possible to nurture curiosity, persistence and breakthrough creativity? TAU believes that anyone—even those without a natural tendency—can develop these skills and become an entrepreneur. While entrepreneurship is often perceived only as a set of personal traits, something you are either born with or not, it is actually a discipline—and like any discipline it can be taught.


Now, thanks to a NIS 15 million ($4 million) government award, TAU is launching a campus-wide framework that will enable every student to discover their inner entrepreneur. It will provide them with the tools, strategies and opportunities to turn their big ideas into successful ventures. The focus will be on both business and social innovation. TAU will also strive to integrate diverse communities from Israeli society into the entrepreneurial world, including women, minorities, the ultra-Orthodox and students from the periphery.


The new Entrepreneurship Center, which requires donor matching according to the government’s terms, will be the nexus of an ecosystem bringing together students, faculty, alumni, industry, government and NGOs. It will serve thousands each year as well as generate the next world-changing ideas and startups expected from the State of Israel.


Donors who hope to expand the circle of innovation across Israeli society will have their gifts matched by Israel’s government at TAU’s Entrepreneurship Center.
