About Our Portal_Site
Mercy Corps and Gaza Sky Geeks (GSG) host the Gaza_Portal. GSG was launched with the recognition that consistent access to high-speed internet could allow Gaza’s young people 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 Mercy Corps, GSG began by hosting Gaza’s first Startup Weekends and expanding education about tech entrepreneurship. In 2014, they began working with individual startup founders to grow their businesses outside of Gaza. 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. They bring together online freelancers, outsourcers, and startup founders under one roof to share ideas, learn, innovate, and code.
