Connecting Palestinian entrepreneurs to the world
Invest Palestine is a fantastic initiative started by members of the Palestinian diaspora in Chile, Latin America. Their goal is simple: allow Palestinians abroad to invest in Palestinian entrepreneurs, therefore boosting the local entrepreneurial ecosystem. Their teams are based both in Chile and Palestine, enabling smooth lines of communications between investors and local entrepreneurs. Although based in Latin America, Invest Palestine provides their services to all Palestinians living in the diaspora. The Invest Palestine team works hard to present investors with curated business opportunities.
Through “Invest Palestine”, an investor will be giving the chance to Palestinian entrepreneurs to develop local enterprises, produce locally, promote products that are not found in the Palestinian market, find a substitute to exported products, increase employment and also be obtaining profits in a market where there is an active legislation that promotes investments in Palestine and provides generous incentives to investors.
A holistic approach
Invest Palestine’s work doesn’t stop at connecting diasporas to local entrepreneurs. Rather, IP provides its clients with 3 integral components to any successful investment: Connect, Build and Sustain.
- Connect: IP facilitates the connecting process on both sides of the platform: they help Palestinian entrepreneurs connect and build real relationships with investors from the diasporas, as well as help diaspora investors connect with vetted, ambitious and trusted entrepreneurs on the ground.
- Build: IP takes pride in guiding the entrepreneurs it works with throughout their entire business journey. IP uses the analogy of businesses as “construction sites”: indeed, they help Palestinian entrepreneurs build their ventures from the ground up, in order to be ready and attractive to investors. The IP team helps entrepreneurs with tasks such as building a solid business plan, all the way to managing their supply chains and governmental framework and licenses.
- Sustain: Once the entrepreneur has built a solid business and is connected to an investor, the IP team guides that entrepreneur along their growth journey. IP helps with fundamental business challenges such as accounting, financial analysis, all the way to mergers & acquisitions. This continuous support for the entrepreneur is what IP considers to be “the core of [their] revenue generating activities.
Getting in touch
Invest Palestine is a professional, reliable and efficient service that Palestinians in the diaspora wanting to invest back home should highly consider.
Who are we?
GrowHome is a platform connecting diasporas to entrepreneurs back home. The problem we’re trying to solve is twofold: on one hand, diasporas often gain professional and financial resources abroad which they want to share with people back home, but they have no easy way to do so. On the other hand, entrepreneurs in emerging countries have incredible talent, but lack access to business opportunities. On GrowHome, diasporas can mentor, collaborate and fund entrepreneurs from their home countries.
We are launching our BETA product in Jordan and Palestine, early 2021.
Listen to the GrowHome podcast on Spotify, in which our founder Marwan Abdelhamid interviews successful and impactful Arabs in the diaspora and locally.
We also organize events connecting diaspora organizations to entrepreneurs back home. If you want us to organize one for your organization, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
