This Tuesday is the third edition of Innovation Day 2020organized by the Friends of Tel Aviv University in Mexico. This is a first-time streaming event where you will learn about future trends not only in business, but also in medicine, research and even everyday life.
Israel, where Tel Aviv University is located, is a Middle Eastern country with an area of 22,145 km2 (slightly larger than the state of Hidalgo), home to 9 million people. Two thirds of its territory is desert and has no other natural resources.
This country had to face five wars and countless waves of terrorism, but has recovered and is now characterized by the fact that it generates the highest number of patents in the world and is the country with the highest number of engineers per capita.
In addition, it has spawned countless companies that bring forth constant innovations and technologies in business, science and technology.
Do more innovation in Mexico
How can Mexico follow in their footsteps? Karen Rossow, director of the Association of Friends of Tel Aviv University (TAU) in Mexico, explains that we need to change our mentality.
“Israeli culture is different, as Mexicans we are more traditionalists, we know things and we see them that way. We have to see how the world is and how it is changing or developing. The pandemic is a clear example: we are all involved in computers, from children to the elderly, we are connected. So we need to get rid of the taboos and understand that technology, innovation and entrepreneurship are for everyone and progress in the world. “
This is exactly what they teach at Tel Aviv University “to change the chip,” explains Karen. The association that he runs is sought every year by Mexican students who want to continue their elementary or college studies at the Israeli university.
To help them with scholarships, it occurred to them three years ago to organize them Innovation dayaiming to bring innovation leaders to the Mexican public in order to awaken the innovative gene through valuable conversations.
