50:50 Startups is built on the idea that the Palestinian-Israeli status quo cannot be sustained and that peace must start in the hearts and minds of individuals – through meaningful connections in venture creation and technological innovation
We believe that:
A truly equal partnership is a powerful idea that can drive business and social change in the Middle East.
- When people from both sides create and sustain a livelihood together, as completely equal partners, they, and others around them will be less likely to feel like adversaries.
- Partnering in technological innovation can foster creativity and mutual respect, lower barriers, and drive economic prosperity in the region.
When entrepreneurs learn to take risks together, start something, fail, and learn from their failure to start again, they develop deep trust and faith in cooperation.
