Introduction to the Israeli startup ecosystem. The terms, the players, and how to navigate job hunting this high-paying industry?
Join online or on-campus for Israel Tech Challenge’s industry lecture:
What is actually a startup company, really?! Who invests in startup companies, and why? What is venture capital? Angel investors? Accelerators? How does this industry work? What is an exit?
Why should you care, even if you want to be employed at a startup company as a data engineer/scientist, cyber programmer, or full-stack developer? Why should you absolutely know this, even if you do not aspire to become an entrepreneur?
Many of us have heard of these terms, but do not really know what they actually mean. In this webinar, Assaf Luxembourg will provide a basic introduction to the business side of this industry and will explain why no matter how good or bad you will be at your next high tech job, you must know the basics of the industry in order to survive and thrive.
