Roy Zur (Cybint), Dov Friedman (CirQlive), Dotan Tamir (Clickto), Dan Vigdor (HackerU), and Dr. Yaki Dayan (EdTech Israel & IES Summit) on Mind the Gap – Startup Nation’s Call for Urgent Creative Solutions at the 2021 ASU+GSV Summit.Israel’s hi-tech industry keeps soaring. The first half of 2021 set new records - 9 IPO’s, 20 new unicorns (including EdTech’s first unicorn – JoyTunes), and a whopping $5.4 billion invested in hi-tech.The pandemic has significantly widened the country’s socio-demographic gaps. Israel’s local industries and SMB’s were affected the most. The post-pandemic workforce is in urgent need of vocational training, re-skilling and a boost in productivity in order to reduce income disparities. Likewise, the hi-tech industry is lacking thousands of engineers and software developers in a “demand only” market while Universities and Colleges are maxed out. Doing “more-of-the-same” will not meet the ever-increasing demand for skilled workers.Join our session to discover the innovation in the Afeka Tel-Aviv Academic College of Engineering applied to the education of their students.
