Atidim Alumni Association
Fifteen years after its founding, Atidim has over 7000 highly trained college graduates – scientists, engineers and high tech whizzes. In 2012, Atidim launched its Alumni network, and is now leveraging the talent of its graduates to help foster early stage technology development through entrepreneurship.
Many of Atidim’s graduates are creative, ambitious, smart and high-tech savvy. Some have incredible innovation ideas. Yet most do not have the tools, knowledge, or support to begin to explore bringing these ideas to fruition. Many programs established by the Alumni association allow selected the young entrepreneurs among the graduates their first big boost to learn how to develop their technology into a start-up, and to navigate Israel’s high-tech ecosystem to business success.
The first Atidim Graduate to make an exit with his startup in Zeevi Michel from Tzfat. Zeevi established a startup company that has recently been bought by Gartner, Inc., a US-based global information technology research and advisory company.
The Alumni Association provides an incredible platform for Atidim graduates to network and to fuel the “Start-Up Nations” high tech industry and contribute to Israel’s economic success.
