BRANDEIS CHAPTER INFORMATION OFFICER (CIO) REPORT
By Roseanne Lieban - Chapter Information Officer
What is a "Startup Hub"?
Startup hubs are places that provide ideal conditions for entrepreneurs to flourish and accelerate the growth of their business ideas. Most major universities are embracing the startup hub culture as a method of connecting individuals and helping them develop new products, services and technologies.
In 2017 Brandeis selected 12 Jews and 12 Palestinians to participate in the Brandeis Entrepreneurship Startup Hub program by encouraging these students to work together.
The collaboration of these 24 students from Israel and Gaza created a program named SnapLand. The program was then pitched to several of Boston's financial elite investment, real estate and hedge fund CIOs similar to "Shark Tank" investors; what was unique about the SnapLand program is that it is a Hebrew and Arabic bilingual investment program.
Brandeis' experiment and success has created a new future of hope and cooperation that eclipses conflict and has provided positive results to enable these entrepreneurs to work together and compete in the ever changing business world of tomorrow.

Located in Waltham, Massachusetts, Brandeis University is ranked in the top tier of universities in the country.
Founded in 1948 and named for the late Justice Louis Dembitz Brandeis of the U.S. Supreme Court, it is the only
nonsectarian, Jewish-founded university in the country, known for its academic excellence and ideals of social justice.
At the same time as Brandeis' founding, eight women from Boston, all leaders in the community, were asked to help in
supporting this new university. They were given the task of building on the collection of 2,000 books in the Library,
which was housed in a converted horse stable. The dedication and perseverance of these women, who now called themselves
the National Women's Committee continues today, sixty years later, as the Brandeis National Committee. With over 70
chapters nationwide and over 39,000 members, BNC is one of the largest and most successful "friends of a library"
organizations in the world. Over the years, we have placed over one million books in the
Brandeis libraries, and raised over $100 million for Brandeis University and its libraries, scholarship and research.
Brandeis University has become one of the youngest private research universities, with ground-breaking exploration
in neurodegenerative and age-related diseases.
