Developing a Social Career
Alongside our Business Career

Accelerating the Growth
of Israeli Society

Our Story

We find the most talented people in the Israeli business community and alongside their day-to-day job –
we turn them into the Start-Up Nation Dream Team in the service of the Israeli society.

Who benefits from it? Everyone.

The Israeli Society

Israel is the Strat-Up Nation. People and companies from all over the world come to learn how we solve problems. However, at the same time, Israeli society struggles with so many problems of its own – from extreme poverty to socio-economic inequalities.
How could that be? It’s not just a question of money. Money alone doesn’t solve problems. What we believe is really missing to solve Israel’s most urgent problems is the ingenuity of our people. That’s what missing.
Now imagine: What if we could bring the most talented Young Professionals in Israel to solve not only their start-up problems, but also Israel’s most urgent problems? What if we could channel Their great ingenuity to help nonprofit organizations and small business grow and thrive? And what would happen if they all had a "Social Career" alongside their Business Career?

The Young Professionals

Hundreds of Young professionals today, in Israel – from leading companies in Israel – invest their time alongside their day-to-day job – to help nonprofit organizations and small businesses double and sometimes even triple their revenues.
They do it because for them it’s not just an opportunity to change the world, but also an opportunity to work in a place that has no ceiling glass – in here, people can be whoever and whatever they want to become.
They tackle complex scaling challenges from the CEO point of view, they are exposed to completely new domains that enhance their leadership perspective, they get to practice new skills while getting top notch training from the Nachshonim’s business experts, and most importantly – they get to work with the best talent in Israel to make a tremendous impact on Israeli society.
This is what we call building a “Social Career” alongside a business career.

The Business Sector

Employers, in Israel and around the world, invest a fortune in retaining and developing their talent. It gets harder when dealing with Millennials who are looking for a constant challenge, personal and professional development, and a super dynamic environment.
Nachshonim enables business organization to invest in their employees’ development in a much smarter and more effective way – in the real world. Not in the class and with no “Leadership” endless discussions. Nachshonim enables the most talented employees tackle real business challenges, run complex processes in real-time (just like they do at work) and to do it in a place that makes a difference.
In addition, it allows business corporation to create smarter investments in their CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) – instead of sporadic investments to answer immediate needs, they can invest strategically in the long-term growth of social organizationד and the long-term growth of their employees.

Our Programs

The models we developed are aimed to strength two of the most unrealized growth engines in Israel – small businesses in national priority areas and nonprofit organizations throughout the country.

Our mission is to help these organizations do only one thing – Grow. Dramatically.

How are we doing it?

The Fellowship Program

A 12-month program in which we find the most talented people in the Israeli business community, and train them to support the growth of small businesses and nonprofit organizations in Israel.
During the program we divided them into small teams – each team works with a nonprofit organization or a small business in a national priority area to help them solve their most urgent problems – how to expand nationwide, how to scale, how to enter new markets, or build new products.

Nonprofit organizations or small businesses?

Talented Young Professionals?

The Board of Directors Program

In this 6-month joint program with WeWork and JDC Israel, we carefully select 10 promising young leaders from the Israeli business community, provide them with top-notch training and place them as Board Members in 10 leading nonprofit organizations in Israel.
For the nonprofit organizations, it’s an opportunity to empower their board with brilliant, energized young leaders from the Israeli business community who bring their skills, their ingenuity and their entrepreneurial spirit directly to the board room.
