FIRG Seminar with Eli Hurvitz: "A Startup Nation Prepared: The Role of Catalytic Philanthropy in Israel's Quest for Excellence"

Israel experienced a sharp decline in the number of its high achievers in mathematics in high schools between 2006 and 2012. The steep falloff placed the "start-up nation" at risk and was cause for public alarm. This talk tells the story of how Israel awoke to this trouble and articulates the strategy that enabled it to reverse and restore its performance. The talk will emphasize the role played within this strategy by catalytic philanthropy.
