Application Deadline: 04/15/2022

Startups Without Borders is proud to announce its latest partnership with Meta to launch ‘Boost without borders,’ a three-fold program aimed at supporting 500 entrepreneurs, building the capacity of support organizations, and providing $100,000 in grants for startups.

Eligibility

  • To be a Palestinian
  • Do you have a business or startup at any stage
  • Commitment to attend the entire training for 3 days (to graduate and obtain your certificate)

Application Procedure

The third phase is focused on building the capacity of support organizations, through a partnership with Flow accelerator, Gaza Sky Geeks, Business & Technology Incubator, and ITIQ, which will nominate up to 20 trainers to receive digital marketing training, certification and become part of Meta’s trainer network.

As a follow up to this program, we could be also exploring working more closely with these organizations and trainers to further scale up our Boost without borders efforts in Palestine.

“For the past year, we have been working with Meta in building a program that supports Palestinian entrepreneurs to grow their businesses amidst the challenges their nation faces. We couldn’t be happier to bring together Meta’s expertise and leadership in the digital landscape with our international network of mentors and trainers. Palestinian entrepreneurs are some of the world’s most resilient founders, and we are confident this program will support them to flourish beyond borders,” says Valentina Primo, founder and CEO of Startups Without Borders.

The program began last September, with a round table discussion amongst key players in the Palestinian entrepreneurship ecosystem, who identified the key challenges entrepreneurs face as well as the strategies needed to support their business growth.

The program launched on March 15th  and is open to startup founders and small business owners from Palestine. Applications can be sent in English and Arabic here.
