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 in two lectures for ninth grade, students heard about entrepreneur skills and how they can already acquire these skills today.
In the lecture the following skills were mentioned:
The ability to take calculated risks - the lecture began on this subject, where a student told the story of her grandfather who last year had invested all the money he'd saved for his pension during his career as an employee for an electrical products project. The project failed and the grandfather was left penniless.
The message delivered to the students was that risk should be calculated and although we believe with all our might that the project will succeed, we must always take into account what might happen if the project fails. Are we willing and able to pay the price?
The students presented the possibilities of raising money from angels, investors and crowdfunding - as an alternative to reduce the risks from the 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 make will fail.
The message conveyed is that failure should be treated as gaining experience, learning the lessons from it and moving on.
Admitting failure toughens us. Do not worry about what people will say, because if we work with what others think and say - we will only get intermediate achievements.
The entrepreneur tries and if he does not succeed -> he concedes failure -> draws conclusions -> and begins again from the start.
The ability to start over - the 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 the success of a 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, know how to listen, know how to get and pass feedback, know to trust others and delegate.
The lecture for the Blich high school students.

To Galit Zamler, 23.2.2010
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.
