This year, ninth-grade students learned about entrepreneurial skills and how they can already acquire these skills now.

Galit talked about the following skills:

The ability to take calculated risks - the talk began with this subject. One student told that her grandfather invested all the money he'd saved for his pension in opening an electrical store. The investment failed, and the grandfather was left penniless.

Galit explained that risk should be calculated and, although we strongly believe in the success of the venture, we must always be prepared for what might happen if the project fails. Are we willing and able to pay the price?

The students learned about the possibilities of raising money from private investors and crowdfunding as an alternative to reduce the risks of being an entrepreneur, with all the implications involved in each method.

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 you 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 about what others think and say - we may only get mediocre achievements.

Entrepreneur try, and if they do not succeed -> they concede failure -> draw conclusions -> and begin 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 venture's success increase significantly when it comes to more than one person, 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 give feedback, know to trust others, and delegate authority.

The program study was held throughout the year, once a week, on Mondays.

The program combined the two leadership classes, and they went for a tour outside of the school:

One leadership group toured the Tel Aviv-Jaffa Academy. Click on the link to see the presentation of the visit.

The other group of young entrepreneurship leaders visited the fashion store named "boo," managed by Rotem Eyal. The purpose of the visit was to check the possibility of executing a shirt for any size venture, which was one of the project ideas submitted by the students.

The program also invited guest lectures for the two groups:

The entrepreneur, Eyal Amiel, a guest lecturer that talked with the older students on how to succeed and to fulfill your dreams.

Haggai Cohen also talked with the older group about the principles of applied physics and identifying opportunities for ventures from our immediate environment.

Guest lecturer, Sibel Zuaretz, developer of the flower yoga method, shared with the young group the process that brought her to the success she is currently experiencing.

Moreover, this year, the Mordei HaGeta'ot school celebrated GGEW 2013, during which entrepreneurs from various fields came to the school and shared their entrepreneurial experiences with the students.

It was a truly empowering experience for students who hosted a delegation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, consisting of leading educators from developing countries, teaching them how the Mordei HaGeta'ot school teaches entrepreneurship.

The two entrepreneurial leadership groups came up with ideas for projects and executed some of them. You can read about the process in its entirety here: the process of choosing ideas for projects, evaluating, and executing them.

 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 eight engaging sessions, 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.

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.

You led the course in a relaxed and fun atmosphere while using attractive visual forms. It has also been a mix of reality games and illustration of business development from the perspective of the entrepreneur.

I strongly recommended to all my acquaintances and friends.

In recognition,

Ayal Peitshiitzki
