Palestinian Mentorship Program

It's Official! PIP has started its Pilot Cycle of the new Palestinian Mentorship Program (PMP). PMP launched in August 2020 and aims to connect Palestinian Tech Entrepreneurs and companies with experienced Mentors in the United States, Europe, Israel, and elsewhere. PMP focuses on helping Palestinian professionals working in the Palestinian tech sector build valuable relationships with, and gain critical access to, foreign markets and the latest 'business knowhow' through strategic partnerships around the world.

So, How Does it Work?

Through a series of virtual meetups, and a process of 'mutual selection', PMP matches its Mentees with an appropriate Mentor. Matching is based on the individual needs and challenges of the Mentee, as identified by the Mentee. To learn more about PMP, click HERE.

Meet the Mentors:

Once you join PMP as a Mentor, you become a part of PMP's Executive Mentor Pool. PMP Mentors come from around the world and include business and tech leaders in the following fields:

  • Venture Capital (fundraising, finance, networking)
  • Business Development & Marketing
  • Technology
  • Legal

As a PMP Mentor you will:

  1. Help support an exceptional Palestinian entrepreneur or high-tech executive to identify and address key challenges in their company and career.
  2. Share strategies and best practices from your own experience that can increase the chances for the Mentee's professional success.
  3. Gain valuable insight into an emerging startup market.
  4. Further develop your mentorship experience and skillset.
  5. Meet a broad group of exceptional Palestinian entrepreneurs and high-tech professionals, as well as other Mentors engaging the community.
"Because of PMP, I have an incredible opportunity to develop relationships with senior tech executives from around the world. I'm excited to work with these industry leaders and to see the positive impact this will have on me and my company."
