Fast Forward: The First Palestinian Startup Accelerator But it is Suspicious
West Bank is getting its first startup accelerator Fast Forward, which comes from a Palestinian organizations called Leaders Organization.
Fast Forward will provide web and mobile start-ups with seed capital investments USD 20,000 to each startup in addition to six months incubation. And an intensive training programme to help entrepreneurs in developing a sound business models for their enterprises. Entrepreneurs selected for participation in Fast Forward will also have access to a network of mentors and resident business consultants who will provide business and technical advice to the start-ups during and beyond the acceleration period. Finally, Fast Forward will connect enterprises with potential investors and will leverage its network and a series of events to create further investment opportunities for accelerated enterprises.
Unfortunately the organization behind Fast Forward which is leaders Organization received grants from the US government and other suspicious western government agencies. That known, we do not encourage Palestinians to apply and enroll in such a suspicious organization.
