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!

Benny,
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.

To all,
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!
