The MIT EF program was very productive and beneficial. It significantly enhanced my understanding of the business world, allowing me to become more familiar with the American market, specifically advancing the analysis of the market business model and Go-to model strategy of my specific company. The ability to work closely with mentors both here in Israel and from MIT is a unique and great opportunity, it opens many doors and development directions. Overall, the program was great and allowed me to apply the theories in relation to my company. I’m grateful to a lot of people who made it possible.

The program the MIT EF designed gave us, in a short time, a glance into most aspects of our responsibilities. It was presented most professionally. Beyond the lectures and experts, program leaders invested their time and expertise to direct each of us with our specific challenges. I hope this program continues and many more start-up managers get the chance to gain the necessary tools to advance their ventures. I believe that technology and better managerial skills will create a better world for all of us.

Gals Bio,


Thanks to the MIT EF She Entrepreneurs accelerator, I went through two major pivots. One is business-wise and the other is personal. I realized that I’ve been presenting and storytelling my business in the wrong manner. In addition, with the new tools I gained, I was able to pivot my business model, identify my real market, first users and assess the initially expected revenues. I truly believe that now with the new pitch, We will finally succeed in fundraising.
