It has been 50 years since the start of the Israeli military occupation over Palestinian territories, and 22 years since the end of the Oslo Accords, which means the majority of the population in the Middle East today has been born into this reality. Moreover, any teenager whose formative years followed 1995 does not know what it’s like to possess legitimate hope for peace. Amidst such a reality, in which the word collaboration often has a negative connotation, MEET, The Middle East Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow, brings together Israeli and Palestinian bright young leaders to create positive social and political change through technology and entrepreneurship.

MEET’s intensive three-year educational program is provided by MIT instructors, which enables us to attract the brightest Israeli and Palestinian students (ages 14-17). MEET specifically targets this age range as we believe that the first step toward changing our regional reality involves providing bright young people with positive experiences working together during their formative years.
