What makes this program unique?



 

Lab: Product Innovation & Venture Creation*

 

In the Lab courses (3 consecutive courses) students work in teams to develop a new product and venture from the concept stage. The Lab experience is based on leading entrepreneurial methodologies, combined with UX and product techniques. Students work closely with leading mentors from the Israeli startup community, including entrepreneurs, investors, and experts in various domains: online marketing, user experience, product management, product validation strategies, and more. Students who choose to develop hardware products, such as IoT and robots, can learn how to use milab’s advanced rapid-prototyping tools, including 3D printing, electronics prototyping and sensors, woodshop, metal shop, and biofabrication.

 

 

Practicum Experience*

 

Students are offered a unique opportunity to experience the startup world from within, by joining early stage startups, accelerators, VCs, or incubators. Students who participate in the practicum program devote 6-8 weekly hours during a 4-month period to carrying out professional projects. Former students worked at Microsoft Ventures, Sigma Labs, 8200 EISP, Glilot Capital, OurCrowd, and many startups. Our network of collaborators is constantly growing and we tailor opportunities for our students.

The Study Trip includes visits to startup companies and meetings with entrepreneurs with an “Israeli connection,” as well as with interesting leaders in other sectors. The Study Trip offers students an opportunity to get a firsthand impression of current trends, new technologies, and innovative business models.
