Journey to the Startup Nation
CIJE brings a cohort of students and teachers each year to Israel on its signature "Journey to the Start-Up Nation." Students learn how successful engineers and business people approach problems and find marketable solutions in the holy land. Many graduates of CIJE programs take these priceless experiences and insights with them as they journey through college and enter competitive careers.
The group meets with educators, entrepreneurs, teams at major companies, and entrepreneurs with successful start-ups. They participate in workshops and hands-on activities at the Technion and Weizmann Institutes.
"Who will become the innovators of tomorrow? CIJE students who experienced the ins and outs of the Startup Nation know the formula well: irresistible passion, chutzpah, and the audacity to challenge the status quo."
