Challenge

The Digital Divide is a social challenge that refers to the gap between those who have consistent access to computers and the internet and those who don't. The gap grows as a country becomes more dependent on technology in both its economic and democratic institutions. Narrowing the Digital Divide has proven to reduce socioeconomic inequality.

Solution

The Campus and Hub will run a number of programs that will help the local population and provide greater access to other periphery communities far from Tel Aviv (Israel's StartUp city). These programs include: a Startup Accelerator, Open Workspace, Startech High-Tech School, Employment Training, the Seeds Entrepreneurship Program and Appleseeds Headquarters. Appleseeds programs serve over 80,000 beneficiaries who are creating social mobility for themselves and their communities.

Long-Term Impact

Appleseeds' vision for Israel is technological equality for all. Appleseeds is an Israeli nonprofit that was founded with the aim of bridging the growing Startup Nation to underserved communities in Israel's social and geographic periphery. Appleseeds promotes digital equality by developing and implementing programs in the areas of technology, employment, and life skills. The Ramla Hub & Campus puts Appleseeds HQ in Israel's periphery creating better access for underserved communities.
