Please join us for TAMID Group at Oregon's Start-Up Nation: Sustainability and Entrepreneurship Symposium on Monday, February 26 at 6:30 p.m. in the UO Ford Alumni Center.

Lecture by Seth M. Siegel, Discussion led by Dean Sarah Nutter, and Q+A followed by Book Signing
Come get inspired, learn about the Start-Up Nation, and hear how Israel transformed itself from a parched land into a water superpower and how its model can help the U.S. and other countries prevent future water crises.

The purpose of this event is to educate and enrich students at the University of Oregon and statewide communities at large on the topic of Israel as the leading start-up nation. At this event, we will provide a platform to demonstrate how its innovation can be applied to our own communities, and inspire further student interest in the fields of international business, innovation, sustainability, and entrepreneurship at large. Additionally, this symposium will showcase the value of having an organization such as TAMID on campus—one that serves as an outlet for undergraduates to seek professional, entrepreneurial, and hands-on learning through an international lens regardless of major.
