About Us


Gaza Sky Geeks is the first and only startup accelerator in Gaza, run by Mercy Corps and was launched with support from Google in 2011.

Our mission is to spark awareness of startups in Gaza.  We conduct active outreach, build a vibrant community that nurtures innovation, and connect top teams to global resources.  We aim to transform Gaza’s most talented youth into the Middle East’s business leaders and realize Gaza’s potential as a startup hub.



Mercy Corps is a leading global humanitarian agency saving and improving lives in the world’s  toughest places. With a network of experienced professionals in more than 40 countries, we partner with local communities to put bold ideas into action to help people recover, hardship and build better lives.
