Hebrew University to offer Distinctive Virtual Training Program on Innovations and Entrepreneurship for Incubators, Academia

The Karnataka Digital Economy Mission (KDEM) has partnered with the Hebrew University, Israel to launch a distinctive Innovation Management Course, a virtual training program on innovations and entrepreneurship.

As per the association, KDEM and The Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel is hosting its first program spanning over five days that includes 10 sessions across topics such as incubation, disruptive innovation, funding, best practices, acceleration models, sustainability and technology.

The announcement comes at a time when a twelve-member delegation consisting of officers from the Israel National Defence College is visiting Karnataka as part of their academic curriculum.

Speaking at the launch of the training program, Dr. Aswathnarayan C.N. said, “Israel has a very mature ecosystem of innovation, technology and start-ups and it is already known for its prowess in cybersecurity and research & development. Karnataka as a whole and Bengaluru in particular being the innovation hub of India makes it relevant for Israel and Karnataka to forge a strong collaboration and build an ecosystem that inspires, motivates and facilitates growth. I am positive that KDEM will be a robust knowledge and networking bridge that will benefit both India and Israel.”

The program is expected to be conducted by experts in Fintech, Business Administration, venture capitalists and entrepreneurs.

B V Naidu, Chairman, Karnataka Digital Economy Mission said, “The genesis of the KDEM falls back on the need to build a start-up ecosystem for the state that goes beyond Bengaluru and map emerging clusters to build a spoke shore strategy that contributes to the nation’s digital economy. Israel places innovation and technology very high on its agenda and given the relationship both the countries share, will be mutually beneficial in harnessing talent and making a mark on the global platform. We received a rousing response from Israel at the Bengaluru Tech Summit and the Innovation Management Course was a natural progression to build a robust and skilled workforce in order for Karnataka to become an innovation hub. We welcome our learned delegates to India and look forward to understanding the Israel Model and identify opportunities for growth through mutual collaboration.”
