Our Impact

In a world full of challenges, entrepreneurs are coping to overcome mental blocks impeding them from doing what they do best, innovate and operate properly. Overcoming these obstacles alone while trying launching their startup is tough. That’s why Flow Accelerator works to maintain a balanced work-life, decent work standards in a gender-equaled environment to promote a healthy inclusive environment that supports entrepreneurs and help them overcoming any hurdles they might face through their challenging journey.

Despite flooding with great minds and promising ideas, Palestine faces one of the biggest challenges in the world – unemployment. Recording one of the highest rates worldwide, scoring 41% among females and 21% among males – according to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics, in 2020. With graduates’ numbers on the rise, the demand for job opportunities is skyrocketing in an already saturated market, and the need for new opportunities is crucial at that point. Flow recognizes that need, and tries to change the traditional mindset of focusing on searching and applying for jobs rather than creating innovative alternatives to develop sustainable cities, communities and the future economy.

Trying to push the existing traditional social standard and gender inequality, Flow encourages women to take the entrepreneurial route through providing equal opportunities, inspiring talks dedicated for Palestinian females to motivate them to innovate and start their own businesses and ensure their wellbeing.

Flow embeds the principles of building promising business, while being conscious about the environmental footprint of the company as it grows and how to meet global challenges and building diverse and sustainable startups.

Ecosystem Development

Flow Accelerator leverages the power of entrepreneurship. Serving as a one-stop shop for Palestinian entrepreneurs seeking skills, resources, mentoring, and networking opportunities. which contributes to the future development of the Palestinian startup ecosystem where our programs, Alumni engagement, community building and supportive activities create a hub for exchanging skills, knowledge and experience amongst the Palestinian entrepreneurs. Which is crucial for structuring a sturdy foundation for the Palestinian entrepreneurial ecosystem

We at Flow believe in completing rather than competing to maintain a promising ecosystem that empowers entrepreneurs . Our contribution as a pipeline for other players in the ecosystem and vice versa, supports the future rising Palestinian startups and entrepreneurs who are the main pillars of any ecosystem.

Flow Accelerator provides a collaborative and supportive environment for entrepreneurs. Flow’ commitment is to the success of each company, and nurture this by providing a rich startup ecosystem that includes access to talent, mentors, investors, makerspaces, as well as participating as speakers, judges and mentors in others’ programs and activities to share our knowledge and experience to the widest extent.

The development of a well-structured ecosystem doesn’t end with the core services and direct beneficiaries, that’s why Flow Accelerator believes that ad-on services help ease and reduce the gaps within the ecosystem.

With the lack of available data, our add-on services provide a ground floor for the Palestinian entrepreneur to access reliable information through 970 Tech (platform) map and SMatch (platform).

970 Tech Map
Because data is power, Flow Accelerator believes that everyone deserves equal opportunities and access to reliable information, which is why our interactive map of the Palestinian Entrepreneurial Ecosystem is available for anyone to view and add themselves to the map, including startups, enablers, entrepreneurs, and investors. Compare enablers to find the best service provider for your startups, brows Palestinian startups and investors.

Startup Bridge
A great idea with a strong team doesn’t always make it in the marketplace. Without money to burn on operations and marketing, it becomes challenging for startups to get their name out there, generate revenues, create a competitive product and accelerate their growth. An investment is crucial for startups especially in their early stages.  That’s why Flow Accelerator designed Startup Bridge; a platform that connects early-stage startups with investors. From venture capital funds, angel investment networks and individual investors, Flow aims to grant early-stage startups access to further funds and smart expertise for potential growth.

Alumni Engagement

With our vibrant initiatives Flow Accelerator aims to help alumnus get connected with other graduates to exchange the resources, skills, knowledge or connections they acquired. Flow Accelerator provides a unique opportunity for alumni to stay active in the local and international entrepreneurial ecosystem through a series of activities and events. The Alumni Engagement structure will be through human recruitment, meetups, founders recycling, scaling up, promoting opportunities, direct mentorship, experience sharing and community outreach.
