Since the inception of the Coller Institute of Venture (CIV) in 2013, the Institute has developed into a globally recognized powerhouse for the research and understanding of venture, generating new and valuable insights for scholars and practitioners alike.
Jeremy Coller’s deep appreciation for the work of CIV has helped to cement his commitment to the School of Management at large, paving the way three years later to his transformational $50 million gift and our dedication as the Coller School of Management. The gift – the largest ever to Tel Aviv University — enables our School to accelerate its development with the aim of breaking new grounds in management research and innovation. As part of our expansion, CIV is now reintegrating into the School, where it will continue to thrive as well as help boost the School’s prestige and global reach.
I would like to take this opportunity and thank Prof. Yesha Sivan for leading CIV over the past four years. Yesha’s work, under the direction of Prof. Eli Talmor and together with the entire CIV team, has left a definite and (I dare already predict) lasting mark on the world of venture research, with implications for scholars, practitioners, and policymakers. I am sure you will all join in wishing him the best in his future endeavors.
Read Yesha’s farewell note here.
In the coming months, we plan on building on Yesha’s fantastic work in further developing CIV, now as an integral part of the Coller School of Management. I invite you to follow our updates as you continue enjoying the rich abundance of valuable resources offered by the Institute in its online channels.
Wishing you a happy new year,
Prof. Moshe Zviran, Dean
Coller School of Management
