Hybrid is an acceleration program for ventures aiming on bringing ventures from an early stage level, to a stage that enables initial fundraising from investors and/or other government programs. The program lasts about six months and consists of both weekly group sessions, and personally-tailored ones. While in group sessions, the entrepreneurial teams meet for lectures and workshops weekly, in the personally-tailored sessions, each team of entrepreneurs receives tailored individual support, professional advice, access to advisors, exposure to investors and more.
