SV101 is a rare opportunity to get an exclusive view of the inner workings of Silicon Valley and to have access to key figures and their valuable insights on starting off on the right foot.


Learn from their mistakes and triumphs while creating highly valuable ties. Our past 11 batches have gained unparalleled access and connections to top-tier investors, and leaders in the Silicon Valley ecosystem, along with being part of a unique community of our alums with relationships built to last.

The Application Process:


Submit your application by May 31st, 2022. Increase your chances by submitting early, as we review the applications on a rolling basis. The later you apply the fewer spots remain.


The 40 most promising startups will be invited to meet a panel of seasoned judges in Tel - Aviv to determine the final10 startups that will join Batch 12.


Selections for the finalist panel will be sent by June 18th, 2022.


We will notify you of the final decision personally via email by July, 2022


Program Content:

During the two-week program, participants will take part in:

  • Group talks & workshops with ICON members and guests (past speakers have included Ben Horowitz, Oren Zeev, Nir Zuk, Shlomi Ben - Haim).

  • Sales and marketing series, which includes workshops and practices to help you build your sales organization

  • 1:1 office hours with investors and corporate executives in the Valley (past mentors included Noam Bardin, Adam Nash, and many more)

  • At the end of each week, you will attend an Investor panel "Grill", a chance to receive straightforward feedback from top-tier investors in the Valley

  • Each startup will receive at least two mentors from their verticals. The mentor’s role is to guide the startup through the program, to provide them with valuable feedback on their product and what they do while connecting them with relevant people in the Bay area.

If your startup is chosen, we expect the participation of the Co-founder CEO and are open for another founder to join.


The cost of the program is $1,800 per person. Each participant will be in charge of their own travel and lodging fees.

The Alumni Community

The two-week program is only the beginning of what has become a lifetime program for our alums.


After SV101, ICON continues the experience by:

  • Advising and making intros for as long and as often as our alumni startups need

  • Continuing to cultivate our alumni network with professional and social interactions, both in Israel and the Silicon Valley

  • Giving our alumni the opportunity to connect with founders from other batches and to discuss lessons learned, growth, and professional future once a year
