"A3i Accelerator for me was a warm house, while the other "frames" kicked me out. A solution for people with disability needs is not something that any fund or accelerator was involved in six years ago, and when the call was opened, it was as if the place in my world was found."

ABOUT US

PresenTense promotes social change through entrepreneurship. At the core of our organization is the belief that entrepreneurship contributes to personal, community and economic empowerment, which closes gaps and encourages growth and social inclusiveness. Together with our partners, we create entrepreneurial ecosystem models and enable opportunities across communities, while offering hundreds of entrepreneurial workshops, seminars and training programs aimed at diverse groups.

A public benefit company founded in 2007, PresenTense pioneered the building of a unique and thriving community of social entrepreneurs in Jerusalem and an innovative entrepreneurship ecosystem in Jaffa. Other PresenTense “firsts” include establishment of a social entrepreneurial accelerator, an accelerator for technological entrepreneurship in the Israeli-Arab sector, an accelerator for ultra-Orthodox women, and an accelerator for assistive technologies.

Creating opportunities for thousands of people from all walks of life across Israel, PresenTense makes entrepreneurship accessible to all.

PROGRAMS

Our Methodology

Our unique work model has enabled us to develop sustainable entrepreneurial ecosystems among diverse communities across Israel.

  • We identify communities for which entrepreneurship can provide an advantage and growth.
  • We tailor our programs to meet the needs and knowledge of targeted groups within a community.
  • We implement our programs in cooperation with the local community, donors, and partners from the private and public sectors.

By leveraging this methodology and building supportive communities, we make the entrepreneurial world – its way of thinking, knowledge, tools, and network – accessible to our targeted groups and communities.

Made In Jaffa

with the support of the Citi Foundation and
the Tel Aviv-Jaffa Municipality
We launched the first-ever program promoting entrepreneurship in Jaffa, which aims at closing the gaps between Israel’s financial and high-tech bedrock – Tel Aviv – and its sister municipality – Jaffa. The program targets local youth, and includes workshops at all Jaffa high schools, meetups, tours of leading technology companies, an accelerator for turning ideas into action, and other dedicated programs for youth and women. The program is based at the Jaffa Youth Center on 83 Yefet St.

Jerusalem Ecosystem

with the support of the Leichtag Foundation
We got our start in Israel in 2007 by promoting social entrepreneurship among diverse communities in Jerusalem. Today we continue to actively participate in the development of our groundbreaking Jerusalem entrepreneurial ecosystem, and to support hundreds of entrepreneurs who graduated from our programs. In creating this unique ecosystem, PresenTense established a number of “Israeli firsts”: a hub for social organizations, a social entrepreneurial accelerator, and an accelerator for women from the ultra-Orthodox sector.

Made in Haifa

with the support of the Citi Foundation
Currently being launched, this program exposes Haifa youth to the world of entrepreneurship, particularly encouraging entrepreneurial thinking to those with virtually no connection with the field. The program’s first stage includes events and activities aimed at inspiring participants and exposing them to innovative content in order to get them to participate in the entrepreneurial ecosystem. The program will be expanded in 2019, and will include activities that build capabilities and provide tools for executing innovative initiatives and projects.

OTHER PROGRAMS

As pioneers in the development of entrepreneurship among diverse groups, we have launched dozens of unique initiatives and programs over the past few years to expand our efforts within Israel’s social and geographic periphery.  The vast knowledge and experience we have accrued as a result of these efforts are reflected in the various entrepreneurial ecosystems we have created – “Made In, by PresenTense” – which are at the heart of our activities.

Workshops & Consulting Services

As a leading organization that fosters entrepreneurship among diverse communities, we offer dozens of annual training programs, workshops, seminars, and entrepreneurial/innovation initiatives aimed at diverse groups. In addition, we provide entrepreneurial development consulting services and establish hubs.

Participants of our programs acquire innovative entrepreneurial tools to develop existing initiatives and promote new ones. The workshops and seminars are based on our unique methodology and content. Our methodology encourages creative entrepreneurial thinking, accelerates projects, and establishes active communities comprising business partners and volunteers. Our content, which is adapted to the characteristics and needs of each target audience, is suitable for organizations that promote early-stage entrepreneurs and cultivate intra-organizational initiatives.

Our consulting and accompanying services are designed for organizations, local authorities and government entities. These bodies promote entrepreneurship in their ongoing activities and entrepreneurial development in education and special education, in assistive technologies for people with disabilities and elderly people, in social businesses, and in other areas.
