General - the program is just great, I participated in the 2nd program at 2008 and came back this year!! So much to learn each time, so many important items and interesting people.
The medteck sphere is changing fast and these 3 days gave an amazing screening on all aspects, and as so is a great and time efficient program for a busy manager.
I think the faculty was well picked, very experienced, wide angled and great presenters.
Participants - great mix of managers from the whole medteck sphere - very good to exchange ideas.
Just continue!! Next year I will tell my friends to come! Thanks!

There is not one CEO that I am aware of that has loop understanding in all aspects of the business. It was refreshing to get these fascinating presentations, covers almost all areas of running a company. Well done!
The program is Great! Very good environment to meet new great people. Well organized. The topics are well defined.
I thought it was very useful information. I made good contacts. Overall it was a very good program that I would recommend to others in the field.
The program provides very good insights about life science business ventures.
My benefits from the course were learn from the experience of others; get to know people from the industry and learning on different aspects of managing a company
I must admit that I was surprised as I experienced greater time than I expected and obviously expanded my knowledge while escalating networking.
It was refreshing to take a break from all daily tasks, stimulating my brain.
I wanted to warmly thank you for the opportunity to participate in the Health Care Technological Innovation class last week.
It was top notch. Highly interesting and very professional, both on the content side as well as the organizational point of view. The group of speakers was remarkable, and the participants were professional and constantly brought about an interesting discussion to the table. I truly appreciate this opportunity and thank you greatly.
The program opened my mind to new opportunities.
Just arrived from Brasil and wanted to thank you personally for giving me the opportunity of participating in this top level course.
I was very impressed by the Faculty as well as the organization level, not quite what we are used to have in Israel, kol hakavod!!!

Thanks (again) to you and your co-directors for organizing The 7th course on Health Care Technological Innovation - From Idea to Commercialization.
Many thanks to the speakers and participants in this course and for all those who contributed to its success.

Thanks once again for pulling everyone together and for hosting another successful course. Indeed amazing to think that it’s been going for so many years. And a big thanks to all of the other speakers who spent much time, effort, and money to help make the course a success.
As well, a huge thanks to Shiri for all of her efforts to pull everything together. Terrific all around.
I’m glad we were able to convince entrepreneurs like Ascher, Bill, Udi, Avner, and others to join us and to share their experiences. The attendees I spoke with found these perspectives to be invaluable and the sidebar conversations, where even small suggestions were conveyed, can be very helpful. After Bill’s keynote talk, he is fast becoming a legend – and deservedly so.
Cheers until then.

Great faculty, great "students", interesting companies and good food. What a combination! It really worked well and touched on so many of the important issues facing our industries today. The more today's entrepreneurs know about the entire environment the better for us all.
Thank you Shiri and all the coordinators and conveners. I learned a lot!

"A broad, in-depth overview of med-tech industry. Provides lots of "food for thought".
חשיפה לתחומים חדשים כמו E-HEALTH, הכרת מערכת הבריאות האמריקאית, סקירה של תחום ה LIFE SCEINER בארץ. קורס מצויין למי שנמצא בתעשיה כבר שנים, כאפשרות לרענון BASICS, ולהתעדכן לגבי תחומים חדשים.

התוכנית חשפה אותי לכל המורכבות של עולם היזמות ב-M.C. לראשונה נגעתי באספקטים השונים בכללותם. נטוורקינג מצויין- אנשים מצויינים. עם זאת מעט מדי אנשים מהתעשייה, ציפיתי ליותר אנשים.
