Here are a couple questions that tend to come up!
Why does TAMID focus on the lens of the Israeli Startup Ecosystem?
It’s simple: Israel is the startup nation. A country with only 9 million people and the geographic size of New Jersey has more startups per capita than any other country. There’s a lot to learn from the success of the Israeli Startup Ecosystem.
Does TAMID have any political or religious affiliations?
Nope! TAMID is a strictly apolitical, areligious organization.
Is TAMID only for business majors?
Nope! About 40% of Northeastern members are non-business students. We’re not looking for a specific major, just people who love to learn. No previous business experience is required!
What are tracks?
Tracks are what we call the different paths members can take in TAMID to pursue their professional goals. The five tracks are Education, Consulting, Investment, Tech Consulting, and Fellowship.
Every TAMID member goes through the Education track. The Education track gives you the skills and tools you’ll need to jump into the other tracks. It also helps you form a community within TAMID!
After your first semester in Education, you go into Consulting, Investment Fund, or Tech Consulting. You can do one of them, two of them, or all three at the same time (they all meet at different times, so it’s possible), depending on how much time you can commit! You can stick with one track or change tracks from semester to semester. Every semester offers a vastly different experience with new groups, companies, and deliverables, so you won’t get bored in one track! The Fellowship is a summer internship program abroad in Israel that you can apply for every year.
What is Fellowship?
The Fellowship is a competitive internship; however, it’s not overly difficult to get in. The Fellowship requires you to fill out an application, submit letters of recommendation & a resume, and you must record a short video pitching yourself as well. As for how expensive the Fellowship is, it costs around $1,000 for the flight, housing, all weekend trips, transportation passes, and everything else. The Fellowship is heavily subsidized and would cost around $10,000 if it wasn’t subsidized by TAMID.
What’s the time commitment?
Your TAMID experience is what you make of it, and different aspects of the club have different time commitments. Education is a 4 hour weekly commitment, while Consulting and Investment Fund are around 1-2 hours. Tech Consulting is a 4 hour weekly commitment.
How can I join?
At the beginning of each semester, we release our application. We will host recruitment events during the first three weeks of school. These events are not mandatory in order to apply but HIGHLY encouraged to get to learn more about the club. The application is usually due within a month of its release.
