Gaza Sky Geeks
Amount $15,000 in Support of the General Fund.
Gaza Sky Geeks was the first Tech Hub in Gaza. GSG was launched with the recognition that consistent access to high-speed fiber internet could allow Gaza’s highly educated youth to side-step many of the current restrictions on the movement of people and goods that hamper the Gazan economy. Founded in 2011 in partnership with Google and the international NGO Mercy Corps, GSG began by holding the first Startup Weekends in Gaza and expanding education about tech entrepreneurship. In 2014, they began working with individual startup founders to grow their businesses outside of Gaza and to develop our own incubation curriculum. In 2014 and 2015, GSG facilitated the first venture investments into Gazan startups. Today, GSG is the leading co-working space, startup accelerator, and technology education hub in Gaza.
