Your solution has a positive, meaningful, and sustainable effect on the Palestinian community and particularly for those at disadvantage or contributes to solving an environmental issue.
Your approach should be more efficient and/or effective than the alternative available solutions or should provide a new solution to a problem not yet addressed.
Your product should be launched with a track record or you have a tested MVP. Idea stage projects aren’t eligible for the network.
The next phase of the project is to develop the first e- shop for recycled materials.
Our audience is young Palestinians who seek to be different and want to seek unique opportunities. We want it to the 1st destination for youth to find what they are looking for.
