JERUSALEM (JTA) — Google launched its Campus Tel Aviv, a center for Israeli entrepreneurs and start ups.

The campus was inaugurated Monday. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cut a virtual ribbon at the inauguration ceremony.

The campus occupies an entire 16,000-square-foot floor of the Electra Tower in Tel Aviv. The space includes an area for meetings and workshop space for startup companies.
Using the campus and participating in its activities are free for entrepreneurs and startups.

The campus will also give start ups access to Google work teams and industry experts. Google will also offer at the center Launchpad, a two-week seminar for startups in their early stages. Some 100 Israeli startups will benefit from Launchpad each year, according to the Associated Press.

Google began operations in Israel about 7 years ago.
