The Speeder project, led by Palestine Technopark in partnership with Ovation, is an exciting initiative funded by the European Union in collaboration with SPARK. The project aims to ignite the innovation ecosystem in Palestine, by promoting digital, tech, green and social entrepreneurship.

With a clear vision of how to integrate technology to serve the environment and empower entrepreneurs, the project consortium has set out to achieve some ambitious goals. These include raising awareness about the usage and utilization of technologies in the agritech, cleantech, eco-tourism, and circular economy sectors, as well as establishing a network of coaches who will be trained through an international TOT program to help startups scale up.

But that's not all, the project also aims to develop and scale innovative businesses by providing a worldwide acceleration program for start-ups, scale-ups, and entrepreneurs. Startups will be exposed to regional and international investors to improve their competitiveness and expand their market reach.

The project's methodology is designed to achieve these goals by first targeting coaches, who will be selected based on their experience and qualifications in the field. They will undergo a capacity-building stage, where they will be trained through an international TOT program. Then, the project will target entrepreneurs, primarily young females from different community segments and geographical locations throughout the West Bank with a strong affinity for entrepreneurship and innovative ideas in the sectors of ecotourism, agritech, circular economy, and cleantech.

The project will culminate in an exposure series of events to expose startups to various investors and regional/international markets, and help them to further develop and scale their innovative ideas. With the support of the European Union, SPARK, Palestine Technopark, and Ovation, the Speeder project is poised to make a real impact and drive the innovation ecosystem in Palestine forward.
