Israel fellowship

The Program – A professional and cultural learning experience alike

5 Months



The fellowship program is 5 months long and consists of 3 parts.

Two days of every week are spent in a start-up in the amazing Israel entrepreneurship ecosystem. The choice of the startup is up to the fellow and their previous background.

During the rest of the week two days are spent working for the strategy consulting firm PARTNERS PARTNERS & COMPANY and one day working on a consulting project for one of the companies of the Hörmann Gruppe.

Throughout the fellowship, Samson Wollenberber Schevitz, PP&C Managing Partner serves as a mentor and ties the fellow into activities, such as tech journeys and technology scouting visits that provide additional insights into the Israeli innovation ecosystem, but also Israel’s complex and exciting culture, history and politics.

We are very thankful to have the Hörmann Stiftung as a partner who supports the fellows with a scholarship to cover their living costs in Israel.

The HÖRMANN Foundation – Support for young people and upcoming talents

For HÖRMANN as a family-owned company, corporate responsibility goes hand in hand with social responsibility. The corporate group strives to create added value for society as a whole. Every year, the HÖRMANN Foundation supports talented, top-performing students at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) as part of the Scholarship for Germany scheme. Scholarships are also awarded to doctoral students.

“Supporting young people is extremely important to us. We want to enable talented young people to flourish above and beyond their studies and obtain an insight into the diversity of industry and the HÖRMANN Group at an early stage,” explains Elizabeth Hörmann, Chair of the HÖRMANN Foundation.
