Why Should Children Study Entrepreneurship?
In a fast-paced, competitive world, education is our most valuable tool for success. As professional educators, we understand this and work tirelessly to instil values in children that will provide them with a foundation for long-term success and happiness in their lives.
We believe that there is one process that has undeniably shaped history, changes the future for the better, and can be taught effectively in the classroom. That process – or skill, rather – is entrepreneurship.
Based on the Entrepreneurship for Kids ™ program, developed by Galit Zamler, which has been implemented by over 50 schools in Israel and endorsed by the Israeli Ministry of Education as the official program integrated into the school curriculum to teach entrepreneurship to children, we offer a unique learning experience to teach the children skills and knowledge and provide them with the practical experience to develop key entrepreneurial skills in their lives and enrich their inner creativity.
MyWay’s curriculum is inclusive, empowering, but most importantly, effective for all children, irrespective of current academic ability or strengths/weakness in certain areas. The program is designed to strengthen their versatility in key development areas such as:
- Soft skills: taking calculated risks, dealing with lack of resources, creativity, the courage to dare, communication and leadership skills, belief in yourself, tolerance to others and to those who are different, embracing change, positive thinking, ability to work in team, learning from mistakes, determination and perseverance, identify opportunities, attentiveness, taking responsibility, distinguishing between important and unimportant, focusing on the goal, identifying opportunities, negotiation and public speaking.
- Technical skills: writing marketing plans, budgetting, pricing, business planning, online marketing, public relations, advertisement, business intelligence, product life cycle, intellectual property protection.
By using real-life inspiring stories, engaging activities, videos, and games we create a learning experience that lays the foundation for innovative thinking in your child forever, providing them with the tools for lifetime success.
On top of learning the required entrepreneurial skills, our children brainstorm ideas for a real-life project. Our instructors subsequently guide the children in their collaboration to select and develop one or more of these ideas throughout the program.
Whether the project entails designing a product, offering a service or some other novel idea, your children will gain the ultimate experience of handling day to day business risks and challenges in a protected and nurturing environment of our program.
For our secondary school age group 12-15 we also offer post-graduation incubation program if the group is willing to continue with developing their project beyond completion of the program.

Israel the Start-Up Nation
Despite being a relatively young country, Israel is considered to be one of the most entrepreneurial and innovative nations.
As an innovative and advanced state, Israel hosts delegations of investors, entrepreneurs, educators, companies, governments and others from around the world. These delegations seek the secrets that turned a small country into a start-up nation.
Many have tried to understand the Israeli entrepreneurial mindset and culture. Some attribute this entrepreneurial ability to the integration of various cultures in one small country with characteristics such as learning, opportunism, creativity, rebelliousness, audacity, ambition, etc. Others see Israel, with so many entrepreneurs and inventions, as a wonder, worthy of interest as well as understanding.
To cultivate entrepreneurial skills in children, we should expose them to innovative ideas, inventions and entrepreneurs. It makes them aspire to leave their mark in the world. It opens their eyes and makes them understand the potential in entrepreneurship.
Through in-school programs such as the Entrepreneurship for Kids ™ program, Israel nurtures entrepreneurial spirit from an early age.
Our team of Israeli instructors are the best instructors in the field of entrepreneurship and innovation education. All are highly motivated educators with years of experience working with children in developing their entrepreneurial mindset and skills. Our instructors inspire children by sharing the knowledge and skills they gained while developing their projects.
