Aspire is a Pre-accelerator program geared towards creating a vibrant supportive community of entrepreneurial women who are looking to build a sustainable Start Up from their innovative ideas.


The Need

Jerusalem is internationally recognised as a flourishing hi-tech powerhouse, and as the hi-tech industry in Israel continues to advance and develop at an astounding rate, there is an exponential demand for highly skilled and innovative minds. However, a cursory look at the composition of the Israeli hi-tech industry indicates a definitive lack of highly skilled female entrepreneurs. Research has shown that women find it easier to overcome gender related barriers when trained in a female only environment. Aspire aims to bridge this gender gap by providing a pre-accelerator program geared to providing innovative and dynamic women with a learning environment that will encourage leadership and hone business skills.

Initiated and managed by Lili Pergamenikov and Noa Yaffe, Aspire is run by women, for women. Under the auspices of Azrieli College, AtoBe Accelerator and JLM Impact, Aspire is set to launch on May 14th , 2019.

The 10 session program will serve 15-20 women who wish to build their own startup.  We are actively seeking for students, graduates, technological or business experienced women to join us.



Aspirer's overarching goal is to provide a viable learning environment for female entrepreneurs and thus increase the number of women in leading positions in the Israeli innovation and entrepreneurship industry.

By taking part in a cutting-edge pre- accelerator program where we will facilitate entrepreneurial and innovative women to aspire and achieve the goal of developing their pioneering ideas into successful ventures. Aspire is a ten week program where participants will learn invaluable practical tools receive expert guidance as well as inspirational hands on skill building techniques
