MEET THE MENTEES
PMP participants are among the more established young professionals in the West Bank and East Jerusalem: senior people at Palestinian companies and entrepreneurs. While they typically have experienced some success, they find themselves facing obstacles to their continued professional and business growth. To be selected for PMP, applicants must demonstrate how they will not only benefit from the program themselves, but also support the Palestinian high-tech ecosystem as alumni. They are community leaders, founders of startups, and/or work for larger Palestinian high-tech companies where they will become future C-level executives. PMP participants are selected because they have the potential to influence and eventually lead the sectors in which they function and to have a significant impact on the Palestinian private sector and startup ecosystem.
PMP prioritizes gender diversity, and we're proud to boast such strong female representation
Mentees per Cycle
Each cycle we accept between 18 to 20 Finalists, this way, we're able to focus our efforts to help each Mentee achieve their set goals.
“... frankly from this day until now every day I think about what we learned in the workshop... because of what I’m learning in PMP I will reach my goals! So I just wanted to thank you for all of your efforts. You change people” (sic)
