An elite 10-week summer fellowship program in Israel for college students and graduating seniors who are pursuing careers in business and/or technology.
Birthright Israel Excel was created to develop a cadre of future Jewish leaders; to deepen the ties of participants to the State of Israel; and to foster the development of a think tank of innovative ideas with collaboration between international and Israeli companies.
As students return from their internships in Israel, they become part of the Birthright Israel Excel Leadership Network. As part of this network, the participants convene for an annual retreat where they meet with prominent business leaders, politicians and leadership educators.
Israeli students can apply to be a part of the Birthright Israel Excel program as an "Israeli Peer". This is an exclusive opportunity to meet with leaders in the Israeli business world and build one-on-one connections with your peers from abroad.
Birthright Israel Excel is a project of Taglit-Birthright Israel
I embarked upon this journey with the intention of strengthening my personal identity as a Jew, a leader and future businessman
I sat in on a dozen pitches by startup companies, and not only learned about industry trends, but also picked the brains of venture capitalists
The work experience I gained, the people I met, the connections I made, and the amazing time I had touring Israel was an invaluable experience
One of the best aspects of the fellowship was the opportunity to be matched one-on-one with our Israeli peers
It's informing me of the trends and technologies of tomorrow, connecting me with the leaders that will implement them
The task is set before us, the leaders of tomorrow... to use our power to improve humanity
