What is the Crash Week?
Empower your students and early-stage entrepreneurs with a practical bootcamp in Tel Aviv!
With our short-but-intense 1-Week Bootcamp (aka “The Crash Week”),
you and your fellow participants will dive deep into the startup and innovation world.
There is no class, no teachers, no rules. We are totally made BY Founders, FOR Founders.
We expect them to come in to work hard and play harder!
We focus on learning-by-doing and developing a business idea from scratch. All the while, you will be mentored and guided by some of the great founders and experts from Israel, the Startup Nation.
Indeed, this is the ultimate entrepreneurship program for your students
and early-stage entrepreneurship dreams! (All our alumni say so.) Plus, this can be part
of your curriculum as a “Learning Abroad” or “Go Global” program to boost their mindset
and complete their preparation to a career path.
Are you ready to point them in the right direction?
FOR WHOMfor motivated minds
We have always selected participants based on their high motivation and readiness to co-create with peers and mentors. Of course, if you arrange a group of students or early-stage entrepreneurs, we trust your judgement to choose the most relevant participants. We can help you with the selection process if necessary. Participants usually don’t need to come with a specific idea beforehand; that’s what our ideation process is all about!
We’re calling on international participants from all areas of study, backgrounds, and experiences, because we believe strongly that diversity is a strength. To date, we have hosted participants who have studied architecture, business, cinema, engineering, marketing, medicine, psychology, and more. They came from more than 15 countries, including Australia, Canada, China, France, India, United Kingdom, and the USA. Does a specific geography interest you? Tell us about it!
We have the opportunity to mix your teams with our international participants during one of our generic bootcamps. If you have have either a big group or a specific industry you’re interested in, just let us know.
In order to accommodate your busy schedule and in order to keep up with the high demand, we are offering several openings throughout the year with global and generic bootcamps. Choose from one of the following options, or check if others are available:

benefitswe know the worth
There is no speedier or more effective opportunity than this to figure out if the startup or entrepreneurship path is the right choice for your students and early-stage entrepreneurs. They will experience what is required to set up a startup, and they’ll also have the opportunity to evaluate if their startup ideas are even worth pursuing. If they are looking to set up a startup, join one, or participate in a startup accelerator later (maybe even at your location), then this is a real chance to get ready for what’s next.
This is a tremendous networking opportunity too. Not only they will learn from and work with some of Israel’s (and the world’s!) best and brightest and collaborate with peers who share their passion and drive to succeed. Everyone is sure to come away from this with some solid contacts, important because it’s not always about what you do but who you know in order to be better or faster.
In our program, they’ll get a ton of access to both networking and practical education!
Why uswe are do'ers
We’re not teachers. We are an experienced team of thought do’ers and leaders who have been engaged for over 5 years to make bootcamps, hackathons and mini-labs for 500+ students, young entrepreneurs and professionals. In that time, we’ve done it all. From creating two startup accelerators to running bootcamps, the success of our participants is our passion. And we’re not doing it alone.
We are tremendously grateful to pull from the experience and wisdom from other successful Israeli founders and experts. Your startup will be launched on generations of expertise that have designed the business landscape of the New Economy grow and evolve, and the ones behind the Startup Nation. Whether in coaching or through inspiring stories, they can’t wait to see you succeed too.

It was really intensive program but I can say we learned a lot… We came out much more stronger and much more able to cope with all the elements [of the digital world].

This is one of the most amazing week in my whole life… It literally changed the way I see entrepreneurship, startups and how to interact with each other and seek for help.
