EIC Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center was established in 2008, and has since served as a creative hub for entrepreneurs and all those who are seeking an opening into the world of entrepreneurship, innovation and start-ups.
EIC was founded with the vision of leading the way in education for entrepreneurship and innovation amongst students, graduates and faculty at SCE, and to encourage the establishment of technological initiatives. This center serves as an engine for financial growth through the establishment of new initiatives, particularly in the peripheral region, while encouraging entrepreneurship and teaching proper leadership. Encouraging and motivating students towards innovative thinking, involving them in social responsibility endeavors for the benefit of the community, founding and strengthening the relationship between the college and the industry, and educating the future generation of entrepreneurs – all these are the building blocks on which the center stands.
We are working to position the center at the forefront of the technological entrepreneurial community in Israel, while enriching the entrepreneurial culture and encouraging the establishment of start-ups in the south, based on the strong affinity between the students and the Negev. EIC is currently a focal point for students, faculty and entrepreneurs, who are interested in the qualities and skills that the center offers, driven by the understanding that this is how we can support the future of the start-up nation in the Negev.
We place great importance on imparting academic and professional knowledge, delivered through a diverse range of academic and external courses, workshops that provide practical industry experience, or personal guidance provided by leading mentors for establishing start-ups. In addition, we offer a wide variety of lectures and down-to-earth conferences with investors, ardent entrepreneurs and the most prominent people in the entrepreneurial community. These are all tied together with our support and encouragement of collaborations that will strengthen the amazing ecosystem that is growing and flourishing throughout the south in general, and particularly in Be'er Sheva. The vision of EIC is to design and train engineering entrepreneurs that will operate successfully within the dynamic environment of the 21st century, by providing them with versatile tools, training and personalized guidance, which will position them at a significant vantage point within the competitive landscape.
