cover art for Beyond the Breakthrough featuring Itzik Goldwaser

We welcome Itzik Goldwaser, president and chief executive of Yissum, the technology transfer company of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, to discuss how the country’s mandatory army service helps foster an entrepreneurial mindset.

He also tells us about his journey from running a Hebrew University spinout to heading its TTO, how the Israel Innovation Authority helps him do his work and why he still loves getting to the office at 6:30am every day.
