PUBLIC ADVOCACY:  TECHNION empowering our Youth

Dear followers:  

I support Technion’s mission.  They provide the education and technology to Power the Start Up Nation : Israel.  I’ve been visiting Technion since 1979 and can personally recommend their campus, student body and professors to qualified  incoming students.  My own mentor was a Professor in the Dept. of Medicine for approximately 30 yrs.


Anyone in my community, wishing to provide content to my site, “thevoiceofjoyce”,  please send me your info.  This site is dedicated to providing vital information to our “WORLD”.   All the best. Joyce

About the Program

At the Start-Up Summer Program, teens between the ages of 15-18 years old from around the world come together for a 4-week program taught entirely in English at Israel’s most prestigious science and technology university. Students explore high-tech business development and experiment with entrepreneurship and innovation, in a fun and welcoming atmosphere. Working in small teams, students gain experience in innovative thinking and benefit from cross-cultural exchange.

Students participate on academic workshops, visit leading Israeli tech firms and successful start-ups, meet industry leaders and get to know Israel as part of the program’s exciting curriculum.

The goal: to guide students in developing their idea into a start-up business plan.

This exciting 4-week program for 9th-12th graders is coordinated by the Jewish Journey and Technion International and consists of academic workshops, site visits to Israeli tech firms, and meetings with leaders and innovators in the field.


Program Highlights:

  • Take part in science seminars, workshops and exciting lab work
  • Meet with dynamic Israeli entrepreneurs
  • Participate in stimulating business and technology sessions and panels
  • Explore the process of business creativity.
  • Learn how to start your own company
  • Present your business model to a panel of Israeli CEO’s
  • Travel throughout Israel
  • Program starts July 26th-August 18th, 2015
  • Application deadline: May 1st, 2015

Investigate this program and you decide.  Judging from the attendance at NYU’s Entrepreneur’s Festival, the earlier we learn to think creatively and act on our ideas, the easier it becomes to change ourselves and society.  The NYU conference was attended by 1500 young people, including many young women.

Technology and science appeals to young women too!  I was impressed to see young women at NYUEF starting their own businesses.  A shout-out to : Celina ; A coconut “mylk “and Jing Deng, PhD Post Doc Fellow@NYU School of Medicine who was promoting “” (providing research tools to save money and time) .  If we think it, we should do it!
