About Us

Our Vision

The agriculture sector in Palestine enjoys growth and sustainability. It constitutes a strong economic base to bringing more investments and job opportunities.

 

Our Mission

The mission of the Agribusiness Accelerator Nonprofit Company is to develop and invest in innovative agricultural projects and turn them to successful and scalable start-up enterprises by providing advisory support services, capacity building, mentorship and hosting, in addition to facilitating access to funding and markets.
 

Our Objectives

  1. Build on the existing agricultural development programs with the intention to creating new promising agriculture start-ups in Palestine.
  2. Provide professional guidance and support for young entrepreneurs by building and enhancing effective partnerships with related development organizations, expertise, investment funds and private sector institutions.
  3. Provide seed-funding and business guidance to young entrepreneurs with promising ideas.
  4. Encourage investors to seize investment opportunities available in the agriculture sector in Palestine.

 

Our Approach

Our approach is to support early-stage entrepreneurs and increase the sustainable supply of small-scale agricultural products as part of the supply chain.

We focus on providing business knowledge and seeding-funding to early- stage entrepreneurs as well as housing them in a facility space for few months, and preparing them for a pitch day attended by donors and investors in the hope they will successfully make it to the next funding stage.
