Business and Enterprise
Israel is world renowned for its prestigious and innovative businesses and their executives. On Project Beyond we set up small group meetings or one-on-ones with industry leaders in your specific field of interest or major. You will have the ability to form a personal relationship with them. Our business professionals are on the cutting edge of Israel's entrepreneurship scene in their respective fields. They are the true people behind the "Start-Up Nation", as Israel is coined today in many international business settings.
They love it when you keep in touch, and many of our participants are offered internships based upon their connections they have made on Project Beyond. The Project Beyond staff will also help you get in touch with our professionals after the trip, and connect you to other experts in North America for those interested in pursuing our North American internship model.
What questions do you want to ask a CEO of a major Start-Up Company?
