Mr. Ala Alaeddin
founder & CEO InterTech Company
Upon completion of his Master degree in Computer Science and his Bachelor degree in Computer Engineering from NJIT in the US in 1996, Hi returned to Palestine, and ventured into a fresh market that was taking its first steps into technology while the rest of the world was racing to lead it. My decision to start my own business stemmed from both; my belief that I possess both the capacity and the vision to lead a company in a new growing sector, and my desire to contribute to building a strong IT sector in Palestine. With +20 years’ experience in the sector, InterTech’s prints are strongly visible whether locally, regionally or internationally as one of the leading web & mobile development firms. With a profile of over thousands of webpages, portals, and mobile applications, we can honestly claim to be the top design company operating in Palestine, and one of the top companies in the Middle East.
In 2016 I was able with the help of my colleagues to start the establishment of the first technology park in Palestine the Palestine techno park located in the campus of Birzeit university, I am currently a board member and help in the management and putting strategies for the park
