The Kauffman Fellows Israel VC Summit will be held in dual locations in 2018. The first portion of the trip will take place in Tel Aviv on April 22 – 25. Summit attendees will be transferred to Jerusalem on April 25. This second portion of the Summit will be an opportunity to spend with your peers, and explore. Our last gathering as a large group will be for dinner on Thursday, April 26.

We encourage you to make your sleeping arrangements early, as 2018 is Israel’s 70th birthday and is already a very high-occupancy time.

Kauffman Fellows have worked with a hotel in each location and encourage you to book your rooms at these locations for more opportunities to mingle with other Fellows. Each hotel chosen boasts prime locations close to the beach where you can walk the coast line, or allowing you to check out local shops or visit popular restaurants. Please follow the links below for the most current rates available for the Summit.
