Zell Entrepreneurship Program
The Zell Entrepreneurship Program, an innovative program generously funded by world-renowned entrepreneur Sam Zell of Chicago, gives students an opportunity to implement advanced entrepreneurial studies in the creation of real business ventures.
The program, currently in its twelfth year, is designed for outstanding undergraduates in their final year of the business, law, communications, computer science, government, psychology or economics programs at IDC Herzliya who aspire to work in an entrepreneurial organization or start their own business.
The program provides a platform for the development of a business venture from concept to launch. In addition, the program offers students a year of customized learning and invaluable practical experience in an intimate seminar setting. This setting gives students a unique opportunity to receive professional and personal guidance from accomplished instructors, mentors and leading entrepreneurs and professionals from the business community. The program is taught in English and lasts for a full academic year, including a summer session
The program culminates in a 10-day study trip to the United States, where students attend classes at the University of Chicago’s Graduate School of Business, visit leading companies, present ventures to potential investors, and meet the program’s sponsor, Sam Zell.
