During the first meetings, they discussed questions such as why in general, they should engage in entrepreneurship, what is the advantage they gain by developing initiatives, and what is the contribution of entrepreneurship to their lives.
They reviewed and examined existing projects. They characterized potential entrepreneurs, and expanded their perspective to the entrepreneur's immediate surroundings, examined responses of the closest people and defined what is a supportive environment."
"In order to define who is an entrepreneur, the students learned about success stories of entrepreneurs...The students met with young entrepreneurs, some of whom were successful and some who had failed.
They wanted to learn from their experience. Later they learned about the importance of vision, formulated the principles of successful entrepreneurship, spoke about the required investment, and were not deterred from the less pleasant aspects like common mistakes of entrepreneurs, as well as review and analysis of failed ventures.
All this followed the discussion of why you should learn from the experience of others. Guest entrepreneurs were also invited to the course..."

The Great People Everywhere
The Great People Everywhere organization was established in order to contribute and strengthen Israeli society, by providing recognition, appreciation and exposure to people who have decided to change their existing reality through a contribution to the community and the environment.
The organization aims to promote the values of social justice and helping others which are expressed in "little" deeds daily and influence over both actions.
The organization believes that communication and media tools do not provide a sufficient platform for social actions, and therefore "great people everywhere" sought to balance the situation and allow exposure to the public.
The organization works to expose the good people behind the deeds and honor them, which they believe will bring awareness and motivate the public to give to others.
From the Facebook page of the organization:
Ladies and gentlemen! We are proud to present to you the latest righteous person of the month of May: Galit Zamler. Galit was chosen as the great person of the week.
