Israel/Palestine Partnership Opportunity Delegation

The week of July 24, 2016 the Aspen Institute and the Telos Group will co-lead a Partnership Opportunity Delegation (POD) to Israel and Palestine, where participants will engage in meetings and conversations around investment and innovation focused on techology. Participants will experience a deep dive into the narratives and realities dominating the two communities.

With official relations between Palestinians and Israelis still poisonous after a century of conflict, business and economic interdependence remain a postive avenue for progress and stability. No sector embodies this notion more than technology. With a mature and renowned startup ecosystem in Israel, and a budding and vibrant technology sector in Palestine, opportunities exist on both sides of the political divide.
