Founders Pledge 


The Founders’ Pledge gives alumni an opportunity to include philanthropy in their startup ventures for the next generation of entrepreneurial philanthropists.

IDC Herzliya has always had a vibrant culture of innovation and entrepreneurship and The IDC Herzliya Founders’ Pledge is a mutual commitment — between select entrepreneurs and IDC Herzliya — in the form of promised time and money for IDC Herzliya and support, networks, and engagement for entrepreneurs.

We are bringing together a community of entrepreneurs and innovators who collectively can pool their talent, networks, and capital to support one another, the university, and the innovation ecosystem that starts in Israel and spans the world.

While you are growing your business, you are helping to build a culture of giving back by inspiring others to do the same.  And as your business grows, our team can connect you with campus resources for recruitment, visibility, peer networking, and startup support and help you discover the areas you are most passionate about at IDC Herzliya.

Individuals who participate in the IDC Herzliya Founders’ Pledge make a nonbinding pledge to support IDC Herzliya and engage with our vibrant campuses and innovation ecosystem. After a liquidity event, you make a gift that is meaningful to you to the schools and programs about which you are passionate.
