The Elevator assists startups to reach their goals faster. Their friendly environment provides startup companies with the opportunity to grow with a minimum of hassle by providing a comfortable working space and all required support. There are two programs a year, each of four months duration. Each program consists of 10 participating companies. The final month of the program takes place in New York City and focuses on networking and fundraising.

Following the initial introduction, companies or mentors can reach out to one another to find their best match. Support provided by different leading organizations assists the participating companies in perfecting their business structure and product. Additionally there are interns on site at the office, who can assist companies in market research, daily tasks and brainstorming.

EISP - 8200 Entrepreneurship Program

8200, an IDF Intelligence unit, which until a few years ago was top secret, is now considered a leading source for Israeli innovation. The 8200 Alumni Association has been active for over a decade as a non-profit organization, providing thousands of the Israeli Intelligence 8200 Unit alumni a place to network, consult and collaborate with their peers. In addition, the Association has led projects to maintain and promote its legacy and to impact the community, for example, through scholarships to 8200 graduates and support of Arabic language teaching programs in high schools in outlying regions. The Entrepreneurship and Innovation Support Program is the Association's first formal platform designated to enrich and leverage entrepreneurial abilities and skills.

The Entrepreneurship and Innovation Support Program was established in 2010 with the vision of utilizing the 8200 alumni network to aid entrepreneurs and innovators and accelerate the fulfillment of new ventures, visions and dreams in high technology, biomedicine, energy and environment and social responsibility among other fields. The program targets both entrepreneurs who are interested in establishing their own ventures and intra-organizational entrepreneurs, who have an initiative to lead within their organization.
