The Israeli embassy is proud to inform South African entrepreneurs about the Mass challenge. The challenge is a huge opportunity for South African startups to win an Internship in Israel where they will have the opportunity to learn from the best and most innovative people in the world and meet with Venture capital firms.
The MassChallenge is the world’s most startup-friendly accelerator, connecting high-impact startups with the resources they need to launch and succeed. MassChallenge Israel identifies the highest-potential startups across the globe and across Israel and provides a gateway to the dynamic Israeli entrepreneurial ecosystem during the 4-month accelerator program.
Entrepreneurs will receive a wide range of support including office space, a vast network of innovative leaders, corporate executives, seasoned entrepreneurs, experts and investors, and will award non-dilutive grants to the startups demonstrating the highest impact and highest potential.
Startups with the highest impact and potential at the end of the program are awarded a share of NIS 1M in total awards. Any early-stage startup can apply to MassChallenge Israel, in any industry, from anywhere in the world.
The 835 MassChallenge alumni have raised over $1.1B and created 6,500 jobs. Participating in MassChallenge more than doubles a startup’s likelihood of raising significant funding and reaching 15 employees, according to a recent MIT study. The next success story could be you!
