The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Afeka Academic College of Engineering in Tel Aviv embodies the college’s vision of engineers as change leaders who develop solutions to multiple human challenges and problems. We believe that innovation and entrepreneurship are a critical way of life for engineers, enabling them to realize their purpose – be it as independent entrepreneurs, as employees who become intrapreneurs, or in micro-entrepreneurship alongside other activities.

The various activities at the center are intended to provide the tools, concepts, skills, and values of innovation and entrepreneurship in an experiential, hands-on manner. The center’s work model and activities were designed to enable anyone who pursues innovation and entrepreneurship – students, faculty, alumni, or people from outside Afeka – to find their place and subject of interest.

Innovation clubs

The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship encourages students, alumni, and faculty to organize around subjects related to their fields of interest. The center enables to start a club or join one of our existing clubs, designed to “touch the souls” of students and other target audiences – and to let them take part in enjoyable activities that combine engineering and their favorite topics. We believe that every student can and should allow themselves to devote a few hours a week to a subject they love, and that they will find a way to combine their club membership with that subject by engaging with the relevant technological innovations. The activity of any center-sponsored club will be based on technological innovation and entrepreneurship in that club’s area of interest, and especially on guest lectures, solving challenges, and implementing innovative projects for fun and experience.
