So here’s the deal – If you’re in Israel this summer, pony up a mere 450 shekels (400 if you’re part of a non-profit) and you can enjoy a series of lectures focusing on entrepreneurial innovation and creativity by a pretty impressive line-up of speakers, culminating in a invite-only pitch night put on by the latest crop of PresenTense Fellows. In addition, you’ll also have full access to the PresenTense Hub from June 15-July 30 and half price access during the month of August. The Hub offers free Internet access, an otherwise comfy environment and the opportunity to network with a revolving cast of interesting people who make use of the facilities. Some of the speakers who will be imparting nuggets of wisdom include Michael Eisenberg, a partner in VC Firm Benchmark Capital‘s Israel branch, our good friend Dan Brown from eJewish Philanthropy, Roi Carthy from the TechCruch blog, Sandy Cardin, President of the Schusterman Foundation noted commentator Yossi Klein-Halevi, Alisa Katz, Associate Producer of the film Defiance and more. You can get the whole schedule and registration at the PresenTense Web site. All that and regular access to Institute founders Ariel Beery and Aharon Horwitz?? Come on, who can say no!
