What is the Bavaria Israel Partnership Accelerator?
The Bavaria Israel Partnership Accelerator brings together established companies from Bavaria with students and young professionals from Bavaria, Israel and since 2021 also the United Arab Emirates. Through a co-creation framework, multinational teams solve technological and business challenges brought in by the companies. Launched in 2015, there have been ten editions so far with over 50 company partners and over 230 participants.
Corporate partners from Bavaria and Israel present BIPA’s multicultural teams innovation with challenges relevant to their business, in fields such as:
- Industry 4.0
- The Internet of Things
- Automotive / Smart Mobility
- Healthcare / MedTech
In 2020 the universities of applied sciences in Deggendorf and Regensburg joined the Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship and Tech7 and made that BIPA year the biggest and best so far. BIPA 2021 was even more exciting: For the first time Khalifa University in Abu Dhabi became part of the BIPA family, making this a truly multinational experience for everyone.
How does it work?
Entrepreneurs and young professionals from Bavaria, Israel and the United Arab Emirates form international teams, and engage in a 2-month program composed of a kick-off workshop, an acceleration phase, and a concluding workshop and results presentation.
Teams are guided throughout the program by highly skilled mentors to create solutions for the proposed challenges.
Part I. Kick-Off Workshop Munich (October 17th to 21st 2022)
An intensive kick off devoted to guiding the newly formed teams in the process to open innovation while addressing specific challenges of the participating companies.
Part II. Acceleration Phase (October 22nd to December 11th 2022)
Development of a tailored solution for the proposed company challenge supported by virtual mentoring and online collaboration tools.
Part III. Final Workshop & Results Presentation Beer Sheva (December 13th & 14th 2022)
The teams present their developed solutions both to the company parters as well as to a bigger audience.
- Incorporate the tailored solution to the company‘s product/service portfolio.
- Partner with the team by e.g. becoming first customer for the solution or Seed-investing a potential startup. In either case the newly formed startup can also be incubated at SCE or to receive further support during its implementation and initial growth phases.
