Blich~ high school

This is the third year in the framework of Owls day that "Blich" high school students are exposed to lectures on entrepreneurship by Galit Zamler.

This year, ninth grade students heard about entrepreneur skills and how they can already acquire these skills now.

In the lecture, the following skills were mentioned:

The ability to take calculated risks - the lecture began with this subject. A student told the story of her grandfather who had invested all the money he'd saved for his pension during his career as an employee for an electrical products project. The investment failed and the grandfather was left penniless.

The message delivered was that risk should be calculated and, although we believe with all our might that the project will succeed, we must always be prepared for what might happen if the project fails. Are we willing and able to pay the price?

The Students presented possibilities of raising money from private investors, and crowdfunding as an alternative to reduce the risks from being an entrepreneur, with all the implications involved in any of the methods.

The ability to deal with failure - it was made clear to the students that as entrepreneurs, you must be able to deal with failure, since it is likely that at least one project they start will fail.

The message conveyed is that failure should be treated as gaining experience, learning lessons from it and moving on.

Admitting failure toughens us. Do not worry about what people will say, because if we worry with what others think and say - we may only get mediocre achievements.

An entrepreneur tries and if he does not succeed -> he concedes failure -> draws conclusions -> and begins again from the start.

The ability to start over - students were presented with several examples of entrepreneurs who started again, some even more than once, until eventually they succeeded.

The ability to work in a team - the chances of a successful project go up significantly when it comes to more than one project, so you should start learning to work as a team right now. In other words: put your ego aside, and know how to listen, know how to get and pass feedback, know to trust others and delegate.

 A recommendation letter

To Galit Zamler, February 23, 2010

Re: Entrepreneurial Program

I want to thank you sincerely for the participation of my son - Kfir in the entrepreneurial program.

For 8 engaging meetings, you managed to pass to my son and his friends' ideas for business projects and among others: how to develop products, how to collect relevant information and use it wisely, how to reach the target audience of the product, how to integrate the chance of success and calculated risk, the process of setting up a company and using copyright and more.

But above all, the course provided my son tools for original thinking and developing his creative imagination and courage to stand in front of a crowd and bring his ideas publicly.

The course was managed in a relaxed and fun atmosphere and was passed through the use of interesting visual forms. It has also been a mix of reality game and illustration of the business development from the perspective of the entrepreneur.

I strongly recommended to all my acquaintances and friends.

In recognition,

Ayal Peitshiitzki
