Overview

The Palestinian Information Technology Association of Companies represents more than 150 major ICT companies in Palestine’s emerging technology and startup ecosystem.

PITA has become the driving force in advancing the ICT sector’s interests, and the leading information source about this sector in Palestine.

Based in Ramallah, PITA was founded in 1999 by a group of Palestinian entrepreneurs with the vision of creating a non-profit organization to advance the interests and positive societal impact of Palestine’s  Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector.
