Hillel Argentina and Tel Aviv University have announced they will be launching a joint entrepreneurship center for the companies of Jewish entrepreneurs.

The companies participating will have training and accelerator courses focusing on entrepreneurship, Jewish business values, and the strengthening of Israel-Diaspora ties.

Speaking to JTA, Ryan Fain, the Hillel director of the Hilabs program, said the program "is unique throughout the world and has the goal of connecting the Jewish youth of the Diaspora with Israel in a non-traditional way."

The program’s aim will be to train young entrepreneurs to promote the creation of companies by young people in their communities, while spreading the ethical and moral values of Judaism.

The program includes a formation stage, training and incubator, two months in Buenos Aires and two months in Israel at the Tel Aviv University Entrepreneurship Center. The program also has the support of the Jewish Agency.

"The part in Israel is very unique, as it is the only option for young Diaspora Jews to learn hands-on the Israeli entrepreneurial process and to meet with young successful entrepreneurs," Amos Avner, StarTau director, told JTA.
