The Hive, Gvahim
Gvahim is an organisation that assists highly qualified immigrants (olim) to find their places within the Israeli workforce — the first step towards a successful Aliyah.
The Hive programme by Gvahim is a six-month “accelerator” programme in which entrepreneurial olim and Israelis are guided by a group of experts in order to help them establish their own start-ups and standalone companies.
During the six month programme, participants in The Hive are given:
- Office space
- Mentoring from experienced entrepreneurs and investors
- Workshops with top experts
- One-on-one meetings with law and tax specialists
- Office hours with marketing, finance and strategy experts
- Networking events
- Exposure to investors
TheHive Ashdod opened in 2013 and since then many participants have already established businesses in a variety of fields, such as mobile apps, web solutions, 3D printing, irrigation solutions and aerospace technology.
JNF UK has supported TheHive since its inception and will continue to help this valuable project by providing essential running costs.
