Appleseeds state-of-the-art Hub & Tech Campus in Ramla will tackle the digital inequality that exists in Israel's social and geographic periphery. The Campus will provide vital technological opportunities for over 80,000 people by providing innovative programs to impact the lives of these underserved populations. These cutting edge programs include: a startup accelerator, employment training, open workspace, Net@ youth movement, Seeds entrepreneurship program and our Startech high-tech school.
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.
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.
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.
