"Whole process of the fellowship, from finding a position to working in the company, was a great opportunity to expand the network and to learn how people work in the Israeli startup ecosystem. Getting direct feedback from colleagues in different settings from my culture gave me a lot of insight on self-recognition. “

“Hands down, the highlight of my time at Sofaer was the fellowship. The most beneficial aspect of this fellowship was to explore curiosities of industries of work interest post-MBA. I was always interested in Venture Capital, but never thought I was experienced enough to get a foot in the door. The fellowship gave me a legitimate case to stick my foot out with Good Seed Ventures. While working there, I was able to learn from incredibly smart and kind coworkers who challenged and guided my experience. I became obsessed with the world of startups and now I am Co-Founder & CEO of a VC-backed startup, Prefer. Without the fellowship, I would not be where I am today.”

Venture Capital



"During my fellowship, I worked at a cybersecurity startup, as a junior marketing analyst. This fellowship was an amazing experience where I met great people and gained hands-on marketing experience. I was responsible for mapping target industries and markets, understanding industry behaviors, and identifying relevant potential customers. In addition, I was responsible for analyzing competitor sales techniques and digital marketing efforts. I was also responsible for A/B testing the company website, testing different headlines and colors. I was also involved in content distribution and creation. The experience I gained from this fellowship helped me decide what career path I would like to pursue, as I gained insight into the world of marketing, which may be a good fit for me.“

"The fellowship served as a platform for me to leverage my strengths of strategic thinking, creativity, and communication. I found that my educational experience at TAU enhanced these traits, making me more comfortable and effective in reaching out to people. Also, my natural entrepreneurship ability helped me in coming up with potential monetization ideas for IAEAI.”
