During this unique and ever-changing time, YEDI is proud to announce the launch of it’s newest business acceleration campus in Israel! Thanks to the help of extremely generous donors, YEDI has raised over 5 million dollars toward this exciting milestone.
A hub for innovation and a unique start-up ecosystem, this campus will provide opportunities for both Canadian and Israeli entrepreneurs to broaden their knowledge and delve deeper into their entrepreneurial aspirations. The campus will provide resources, programming and services ranging from mentorship, education and connections to resident entrepreneurs. This new Canadian-Israeli partnership gives opportunities for start-up businesses to better equip themselves with the help of world-renowned instructors and key industry leaders. As a Canadian charitable institution, this space will be inclusive and accessible to all, with the hope of promoting peace and prosperity in the region.
YEDI President, Dr.Marat Ressin, traveled to Israel this past June to commemorate the cornerstone ceremony of this innovative facility. The event was attended by high ranking Israeli officials from government and academia. YEDI looks forward to opening its doors and welcoming entrepreneurs to its newest innovation hub.
Back in Canada, YEDI has been proactive during this time and completed renovations of its Alness Business Acceleration Campus, thanks to generous donations from local donors. YEDI is also proud to share that all resident companies of its business acceleration campuses have stayed in operation during this time with several companies experiencing growth and renewed opportunities.
