Zell 11 is progressing with their venture creating…a few of the ventures have MVPs (minimal viable products) out in the world being tested and tried out, some ventures are just getting off the ground after some false starts and here we go again with the start of the application and screening process for the next batch of Zellots. Judging from the information session we had last week at IDC Herzliya, the application pool should be very large this year. Since we are looking for diversity, the large number is promising. Many candidates wonder what it is we are looking for and the answer is not very straightforward. There is not one criterion that we are looking for, but a set of abilities, experience, mindset and what we consider potential to take what the program offers and make something compelling and profoundly meaningful of the experience. Applications are due April 4 (recommendations until April 15). Its just the kick off of a long and grueling process…but I think Alumni of the program will vouch it is a roller coaster worth getting on.
