Who are we?
Israel Business Connection (IBC) was established by the Council of Immigrant Associations of Israel, which partners with and is sponsored by the Jewish Agency and the Ministry of Immigrant Absorption. The mission of IBC is to encourage the immigration of business owners to Israel by connecting them with Israeli business owners and professionals and thereby easing their way into Israeli business circles.
Who can become a mentor?
Successful veteran Israeli or established immigrant business owners and professionals/specialists who speak foreign languages and are motivated to share their experience on a voluntary basis are welcome to join IBC and become a mentor.
Volunteering can provide many benefits:
· Personal satisfaction and sense of elevation from the knowledge of contributing to make both our economy and aliyah flourish;
· Community leadership and recognition;
· Professional and personal growth;
· Lifelong learning;
· A chance to give back; as well as an opportunity to widen your network and increase future business opportunities.
In addition, those signing up for our e-mail list will receive information about business opportunities, investments and franchises.
What does it entail?
In practice, as a mentor you would give free, confidential advice according to the needs of the immigrant and your abilities and time resources. You would accompany, consult, and provide tailor-made information during one or several of the various stages of establishing a business. Most importantly, you would help him/her avoid the pitfalls and get acquainted with the Israeli business culture and local peculiarities of your common field of business.
How does it work?
We do our best to connect you with an immigrant with a similar background to yours in terms of business field, language and country of origin. Our business consultant will be in contact with you to discover your area of expertise and background as well as ways you would like to be of help. When an immigrant with a matching profile is looking for a mentor, our business consultant will connect you together.
