PMP connects Palestinian entrepreneurs to a network of experienced mentors in Israel, Europe, and the United States. Launched in the summer of 2020, PMP was founded with the understanding that Palestinian tech entrepreneurs, executives, and startups in Palestine lack vital access to foreign partners, mentors, and companies that have had success in similar endeavors. PMP aims to fill this needed market gap and to build bridges between Palestine’s developing startup ecosystem and markets abroad. These close, one-on-one mentorships build lasting connections between exceptional businesspeople in the Palestinian tech sector and their international counterparts.
PMP accepts up to 20 Mentees per 6-month cycle from Gaza, East Jerusalem, and the West Bank, and matches them with a Mentor from the PMP Global Mentor Network. The Mentor Pool is comprised of business professionals, industry leaders, and entrepreneurs eager to connect with and help their Mentees overcome professional challenges.
