JEST hosted ¨Towards Innovative Graduation Project¨ meet up where Jamil Khatib talked to students in their last year from different universities on how to pick a project that will help them in the long run. He talked about the difference between invention and innovation, the need to identify a problem and provide a solution to it. Thus, when they graduate they can benefit from it by: locating a suitable market, getting feedback from the customers, and the importance of intellectual property protection. Mr. Khatib talked about the reason behind the lack of success of many innovation ideas.
JEST stressed out the importance of providing all the support for entrepreneurs, which leads to increase the numbers of the heading companies in the city as well as to accelerate the growth of companies in the process of helping create new jobs and promote the concept of leadership and innovation in the Jerusalem community
