In 2011, Gaza Sky Geeks was born with a seed grant from Google.org. In the beginning, we provided inspiration and awareness about how to work online, Android programming, and tech startup basics through Startup Weekends.
In 2013, GSG launched a startup accelerator initiative, which yielded the first venture investments into Gazan startups. A year later, GSG became a proud member of the Google for Startups partner network, which continues to provide strategic advice, content, and support to help GSG grow.
Since 2015, GSG has become a central pillar of Palestine’s tech ecosystem, according to the World Bank. Today, GSG supports startups, gig economy workers, aspiring software developers, and champions diversity and inclusion.
