Get to Know the Entrepreneurs in Beer Sheva Reshaping the Nation’s View of the Negev 

Beer Sheva is known for having the best student life in the country with over 20,000 students at Ben Gurion University alone. However, over 95% of students leave immediately after their degree, draining the city of a young age group looking to contribute to the city.

The ‘Reshet’ is an intentional community made up of young adults who decided to stay in Beer Sheva after their degree and create bottom-up projects that are changing the face of the city.
