The Hebrew University

Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center


ASPER-HUJI Innovate, the Hebrew University Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, serves as a platform to encourage and assist students, faculty and alumni to develop their innovation and entrepreneurship skills. We also serve as a catalyst for venture creation processes to solve real-world problems.

For us at ASPER HUJI-Innovate, Entrepreneurship is a mindset, it is the ability to identify challenges and create solutions. We believe that everyone is born with an entrepreneurial spirit and can generate new ideas to drive impact. We operate in four parallel tracks - promoting entrepreneurial culture and community, developing and running academic courses and programs, creating experience opportunities as hackathons and competitions, and managing acceleration programs for new ventures. These activities create a nexus point between academia and the world of innovation and entrepreneurship.

Our Activities

OPEN 2021

The OPEN Program is our flagship startup pre- acceleration program. During the program, founders work on market research, ideation, business planning and product development. The programs offer hands-on workshops, support from experienced mentors, industry connections and a shared workspace. The program culminates in a demo day event in which the founders pitch their startups to investors and other entrepreneurs.

Our Past Activities

Communicity - JLM IMPCAT Hackathon

We invited you on this Hackathon to solve significant problems – together!

The covid-19 pandemic hit Jerusalem as she did the rest of the world, to say the least. On the last few months we've been learning about the difficulties the city faces these days, from both the Jerusalem Municipality and other members of the city and students' eco-system.

We believe there is creative power in you, the students of Jerusalem. You can develop solutions for some of the greatest challenges we deal with today.

The Communicity Hackathon had invited you to to deal with these problems and offer your solutions and ways to improve our lives.

We were excited to see you particiapte and take a part in the journey of Jerusalem. Some amazing ideas came up and we can't wait to see what next years' brilliant minds will come up with.
