"Seventeen engineering and business majors from the University of Minnesota are coming to Israel with their professor for Keshet’s Israel-Jordan Global Seminar.
"Arriving on May 13, Prof. Marvin Marshak and his class will meet with Saul Singer, co-author of Start-Up Nation The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle ... talk to Gemini Israel Funds Founding Partner Ed Mlavsky; find out about revolutionary gaming technology from PrimeSense; investigate the electricity-generating wastewater treatment pioneered by Emefcy ... and examine the 'pillcam' diagnostic capsule from Given Imaging."
"Among the other planned stops with a Keshet guide are the Israel Water Authority’s central filtration plant — one of the most sophisticated of its kind in the world — and Naharayim Hydroelectric Plant, one of the more tangible symbols of the Israeli-Jordanian peace treaty; the biological pest control experts at Sde Eliyahu’s Bio-Bee; the PresenTense social enterpreneurship community; and Oramed Pharmaceuticals; as well as Trendlines’ Misgav Venture Center’s incubator for life science startups."
