Growing Together: Job-Hopping within Your Organization | By Daniel Kerenji

Mar 04, 2021

When we applied for the Accelerator Program sponsored by Hackaveret (Israel’s social innovation hub), we didn’t really know what to expect. Hackaveret is Hebrew for “beehive” and is also a play on words on “hack.” It was founded by the Joint and the National Insurance Funds. Fresh Start (Daf Hadash), our new non-profit, was just […]
