The Pears Program for Global Innovation in partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs hosted a delegation of young entrepreneurs from iHub Kenya on a week-long visit to Israel. iHub is one of Africa's most important high-tech hubs which provides a community of almost 16,000 East African entrepreneurs with a wide range of support and networking programming. The delegation attended Tel Aviv's fifth annual DLD Innovation Festival, as well as several other side events and meetings with key Israeli officials and business leaders. One of the highlights of the trip was The HookUp Dinner. Read more about the HookUp Dinner event here.
