About Us

Gaza Sky Geeks is the first and only startup accelerator in Gaza. We were launched by Google in 2011. Initially, we focused on early pipeline activities like Startup Weekends. We made a strategic shift to become a startup accelerator in July 2013.

At Gaza Sky Geeks, we identify the top startups in Gaza, provide them with seed investment, and connect them to mentors, trainers, investors, and other resources to help them achieve global growth. We typically work with startups that have already begun developing or testing a concept.  With the support of our acceleration program, startup co-founders take their prototype and turn it into an early-stage company.
