knowledge Exchange through American Houses

The Knowledge Exchange Project through American Houses, facilitated by PaltechUS in collaboration with Palestine Technopark (PTP), stands as a significant initiative aimed at fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange within the Palestinian Tech community. This project, under the guidance of the Office of Palestinian Affairs, orchestrates a series of four pivotal training events and outreach activities. Their mission is to unite Palestinian tech diaspora, local business figures, tech leaders, and budding entrepreneurs to share insights, foster best practices, and illuminate the scope of programs offered by American Spaces.

These events possess a dual purpose: to sow the seeds for future communication channels and knowledge dissemination. PTP, at the helm of this endeavor, meticulously delineates four entrepreneurial themes to be covered during these sessions, as outlined in the comprehensive implementation plan.

The overarching goal is to equip 80 Palestinian entrepreneurs and 40 business leaders with invaluable access to American Spaces' resources and entrepreneurial training. Moreover, these events serve as a conduit to expose participants to Palestinian diaspora leaders, thereby facilitating mentorship and career guidance through connections with four diaspora experts. Crucially, PTP has bolstered its implementation team by enlisting two entrepreneurial professionals. The project encompasses a diverse array of activities, blending interactive capacity-building events, workshops, seminars, outreach endeavors, and networking sessions. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with industry leaders, absorb expert insights, and forge potential professional connections.                                                                                                                                                 

The carefully selected themes—considered pivotal in the landscape of disruptive technologies driving global businesses and employment—are as follows:

  • Metaverse Workshop at America House Jerusalem on June 14, 2023.

  • AI & Data Science Workshop in Hebron on July 26.

  • Cybersecurity Session conducted virtually for a Gaza audience on August 29, 2023.

Each workshop is strategically designed to delve into these cutting-edge themes, ensuring participants glean insights crucial to their professional growth within these tech domains. Through these sessions, the American House Project seeks to catalyze innovation, empower budding entrepreneurs, and nurture a vibrant tech ecosystem within Palestine.
