The Palestinian Internship Program (PIP), Inc. is a professional development non-profit that aims to empower Palestinian professionals in developing and building their careers, and establishing themselves as business leaders, thereby stimulating innovation, investment, and opportunity in the Palestinian tech ecosystem.
Founded in 2014 by venture capitalist Yadin Kaufmann, PIP Inc. provides young Palestinian professionals with work experience placements at leading Israel-based companies. In Summer 2020, PIP Inc. launched its sister program, the Palestinian Mentorship Program (PMP). Through PMP, Palestinian entrepreneurs are matched with Global Experts, especially in the fields of tech, business, and finance for hands on mentoring.
To date, PIP has matched over 80 Palestinian interns with Multinational, Israeli, and Palestinian companies. PMP has had over 40 Mentees come through our mentorships. Through PIP and PMP engagement, we are working to build long-lasting professional and personal relationships between Palestinian tech leaders and Israelis.
