Helping start-ups grow quickly


A variety of problems, difficulties, and constraints face entrepreneurs on their way to turn an idea, excellent as it may be, into a sustainable, stable, and established business operating successfully in a super-competitive arena.

The success rate of start-up companies stands at 10%, hence 9 out of 10 start-up companies fail at some point in their activity or fail to return the investment to their investors. The reasons for failure are varied: market conservatism, weak need intensity, immature business model, competitive arena, disputes between entrepreneurs, wrong business strategy, and more.

EFI- Entrepreneurship Forum Israel aims to assist entrepreneurs in their long journey. The Forum provides high-level professional consulting services, initiates and produces professional workshops and conferences, which are offered to entrepreneurs at subsidized prices.

In order to provide entrepreneurs with the knowledge they lack, to accompany them on their business path, and to form a bridge between imagination and reality, which can be challenging and unexpectedly difficult. The Forum's activities are not limited to MIT graduates and are open to all who wish to learn and get to know the entrepreneurial field, the tools and ways to establish a successful start-up with an emphasis on imparting entrepreneurial principles and providing a practical toolbox for everyone - regardless of religion, race, and gender.

Our tools are waiting Just for you!


EFI - Entrepreneurship Forum Israel programs teach entrepreneurs the secrets of setting up, cultivating, and managing a start-up company in a way that will increase the chance of succeeding in a competitive and challenging arena. There is no magic solution or a winning recipe - there are none, but from an analysis of many failure and success cases we develop in the entrepreneurs the understanding of the questions they need to explore: what are the terrain conditions, dynamics, and processes that characterize the dialogue with the market? Who are the financing factors, suppliers, and competitors in this market? What is the common vocabulary and practice in the field? How are roles defined in a company? And what about marketing?

EFI sessions sharpen understanding of the enormous challenges facing entrepreneurship and technology-entrepreneurs: analyzing existing and potential target markets and competitors, understanding possible market failures and preparing courses of action to address these market penetration failures, calculating costs involved in various activities, and forecasting cash flow. Special emphasis can be placed on dealing with the challenges of building a balanced and strong team and dealing with crises- the bread and butter of entrepreneurs in high-tech.
