At non-profit organization StartupSeeds, Israel’s teenage entrepreneurs and computer whiz kids are being given an unusual opportunity to develop their skills.


What do you do if you’re a bright young Israeli teenager interested in software programming? Join StartupSeeds of course.

Founded 18 months ago, the organization provides monthly training and technology mentorship to Israeli teenagers aged between 13 and 19.

Already 1,500 youngsters have joined the group, and some, says Ami Ben Bassat, CEO of the organization, are likely to turn out to be the technological leaders of the future.
