Calling all Palestinian entrepreneurs from around the globe! 

Do you have a tech startup that needs funding, do you lack the strategic support needed to develop a scalable venture? Or are you an up-and-coming entrepreneur with a promising tech idea that needs professional feedback. If so, then MENACatalyst is calling on you to take the next step and take part in our 2019 LONDON Pitch Challenge.

The 4th installment of our Pitch Challenge series is open to all tech startups and business ideas from across Palestine and our global diaspora community. Our Pitch Challenge series and accompanying international Demo Events identifies and selects the most competitive startups led by Palestinian from around the globe. We bring together, tech startups and up-and-coming entrepreneurs, to connect and collaborate with an international network of some of the most highly successful and influential game changers transforming the landscape of innovation and entrepreneurship.

Our pitch challenge series is a highly sought after event, where we challenge our startups and entrepreneurs to challenge industry boundaries with dynamic pitches that are clearly articulated and present viable business models.

With our subsequent Demo Event, we mobilize a network of committed Palestinian professionals from across the globe to take action and support Palestinian innovation and entrepreneurship essential towards developing a Palestinian based resilient virtual economy. Participating startups gain the opportunity to not only meet business leaders and investors but to tap into invaluable investment and mentorship opportunities.
