iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE 2021

iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE 2021

PresenTense promotes sustainable & inclusive socio-economic growth among underrepresented communities by offering the best circumstances to acquire the superpower of entrepreneurship.

By exposing youth & young adults to outstanding entrepreneurship practices and soft skills, the model provides vulnerable communities including the Arab, Ultra-Orthodox & LGBTQ+ communities, women, FSU & Ethiopian immigrants, asylum seekers & others with an equal opportunity to take part in Israel’s Startup Nation.

Our innovative model levels the playing field, reduces inequalities & makes entrepreneurship accessible so no one is left behind.

In this holistic entrepreneurship project all diverse communities are equally represented. The main focus is to enable personal empowerment, community development and economic growth. It provides individuals and communities with the same opportunity to take part in Israel’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and to achieve exponential economic independence. The program works from the bottom up providing youth and young adults from underrepresented communities with entrepreneurship, both leadership and career practices alongside vital soft skills.
