Our primary goal for joining JFE was to widen our network, but we got so much more. We were extremely pleased by the quality and breadth of speakers. The information in our lecture sessions was so “dead-on” that we felt like the program was tailored to our company. MICHAEL VERNIK Founder / Digispoke
JFE has been instrumental in plugging us into the Silicon Valley start-up ecosystem. From connecting to mentors and advisers at world class companies to learning from experienced and successful entrepreneurs, being part of the accelerator has allowed us to grow and develop in ways that have far exceeded any of our expectations. BRYAN LEEDS Founder / XSync
If it weren’t for JFE, none of us would have made it to Silicon Valley. OMER KOREH Founder / EstimPrice
JFE accelerator was a stimulating and inspiring experience. The network of advisors, mentors and other entrepreneurs I was exposed to were of the highest caliber. I learned a great deal from the experience. The guidance and advice I received was invaluable in helping me advance my company. AMICHAI AMAR Founder / Amaret
We just completed the 3 month program and it was a great experience. You will be surprised how much you can learn in 3 months. They bring about 40 mentors from different fields that can help you advance and focus on achieving your goals, they provide connections to investors, bring them to the office and do anything they can to help. There was not one thing that I needed and didn’t get answers for. I can honestly say its much more then an accelerator. HANI OVADIA
It wasn’t unusual to have a session until 9:30 pm, and another one at 10 am the next morning. Sometimes I’d pitch our product four times in a single day. In many cases, the sessions required advanced preparation if you wanted to make the most of them, and managing this while my company was gaining traction was crazy. DORIN ROSENSTEIN
