Early stage IT companies based in the Palestinian Territories
Participation in a venture capital fund currently being established, which will primarily invest in early stage private, export oriented businesses located in the Palestinian Territories and active in business services, software and communication.

It will support the development of the financial sector and private sector in the Palestinian Territories by providing equity or quasi-equity financing for the expansion of local early stage companies, which completely lack a source of venture capital financing that is critical for their growth.
