Palestine House in Silicon Valley

Through Palestine house in Silicon Valley (US), the world’s innovation capital, Leaders International brought new training opportunities for Palestinian entrepreneurs. The project focused on the broader economic strategy of developing the ICT sector, which is the key driver of the Palestinian economy 

In the first year, Leaders International hosted prominent and experienced entrepreneurs and business leaders from Silicon Valley to train and coach Palestinian entrepreneurs. In-house training was delivered in Palestine by local and US experts. In its second year of implementation, the PHSV program sent nine promising startups to Silicon Valley, where entrepreneurs worked in local accelerators, met with investors, and participated in international networking events.
