This is the last week we are taking feedback on the Kauffman Fellows summit in Israel. If you were there with us, please take a few minutes to give us your feedback.
If you did not attend the Summit, we wish you had been there to share all the experiences with us. We have three questions about why you did not attend and your thoughts on future summits. Your input is valuable as we seek to design events that are compelling for all Kauffman Fellows.
