Enterprise and Startup Development

Enterprises are succeeding here in Palestine... 

We are also part of the growing global startup movement that has no boundaries, language and cultural barriers.  We have programs in place to help foster the growth of our ICT economy and welcome your participation as to what’s next.

History illustrates previous generations of successful Palestinian institutions, academic programs and enterprises way before the time of the microprocessor and the Internet.  

The creative spirit, driving force, will and determination of our people, coupled with today’s global economic opportunity represents an ideal time for you to come and discover the resources Palestine can offer you today- and in the future.

Researches

Scientific research is the nurturer of our knowledge, and the source of information that lightens the path for Palestinian ICT companies to operate efficiently and widen its scope of work to penetrate global markets.

An inifinite number of developmental studies have been accomplished for the benefit of our member companies. The latest undertaken studies are:

 - Regional Market Penetration Study: Studying ICT market opportunities in three different locations in the MENA region.

 - International Market Penetration Study:  In cooperation with Avasant, the association has been able to undertake a supply-driven research that investigates the possibility of penetrating the best three relevant international markets. Furthermore,  the engagement plan for penetration, the local markets opportunity matrix and the best three responsive  ICT subsectors have been studied.

- Firm Level Assessment Study: PITA has performed an Enterprise Needs Assessment at firm level. The study has targeted up to 30 software development companies operating in Palestine.. The current technical and non-technical capabilities of Palestinian ICT companies have been studied to identify gaps and deliver recommendations designed to upgrade capabilities and bridge the gaps identified in the assessment.

Training Courses and Workshops:

We believe in training as one of the most important developmental tools that avail the share of information between local and international qualified bodies... 

PITA organizes various kinds of training courses and seminars to develop the management skills of its member companies. These courses are customized to the needs of the Palestinian ICT sector. Examples of such trainings are: the MiniMBA program and which is annually held in cooperation with different accredited universities and educational academies around the world, soft skills training, Android Training, security training, and Importing and customs clearance seminars.

International Participation:

Being the representative of the sector, and the voice of its companies, PITA is consistently conveying the message of Palestinian ICT companies to the rest of the world... We offer our member companies the opportunity of participating in international events including conferences, conventions, summits, forums, and exhibitions.

Palestinian companies relish such opportunities to present their IT solutions and Telecommunication services, and which follow global standards, to the whole world. Our member companies have gladly been able to place Palestine on the global ICT market by revealing their progressive and creative set of solutions. In the same time, Palestinian companies have been able to build strategic partnerships and strong business relationships with various multinational contactors and vendors around the world. These relationships allow Palestinian companies to acquire the latest high-tech solutions via their international partners, introduce them to the Palestinian market, and engage in a virtuous local competition.

Major participation of PITA has been noted in many well-known international events like CEBIT (Germany), GITEX (Dubai), MENA ICT Forum, and a lot others.
