BGU-SMART is a multi-disciplinary competition, carried out in cooperation with the Guilford Glazer Faculty of Business and Management, the Faculty of Engineering Sciences and the Bengis Center. The teams of 2-5 students must include at least one business student and one engineering student who work together to come up with innovative start-up ideas under the theme Smart Technologies: Innovation for a Better Life. The competition is designed to promote technologies and diverse entrepreneurial teams of students across the country. 


The Challenge is an open innovation platform, designed to enlist students to provide solutions to real-world challenges affecting large organizations. Each cycle, a different global company provides a unique opportunity to learn about the inner workings of their operations.


A hackathon is a sprint-like competition that requires participants to come up with a solution to a problem relating to a specific topic. The goal of the event is to develop a working product before the time is up.  Every year, the Bengis Center teams up with the Students’ Union and the Unit of Academic Development to create a phenomenal 32-hour hackathon event.

Love the world of entrepreneurship and not afraid of competition? We've got more competitions and Hackathons coming up that will be announced throughout the year. Stay tuned to our main page or follow us on Facebook for updates
