Palestinian Mentorship Program

The Palestinian Mentorship Program (PMP) empowers exceptional Palestinian Tech Entrepreneurs by connecting them to a global network of mentors. Launched in Summer 2020, PMP was founded with the understanding that Palestinian tech entrepreneurs, executives, and startups lack vital access to foreign partners, mentors, and companies that have had success in similar endeavors. PMP aims to fill this market gap and to build bridges between Palestine’s developing startup ecosystem and markets abroad.

So, How Does it Work?

The mentorship relationship forms the core of PMP's programming. Mentees participate in a 'mutual selection' matching process with our Mentor pool to identify the best mentor-mentee relationships. This personalized matching process allows participants to connect to Mentors who can speak specifically to their needs and open up new opportunities in relevant professional fields.
