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 force that can drive business and social change in the Middle East.
     

  • ​When people from both sides create and sustain a livelihood together as equal partners, they and others around them will be less likely to feel antagonized.​
     
  • Partnerships for technological innovation can lower barriers, foster creativity and mutual respect, and drive economic prosperity in the region.
     
  • When entrepreneurs learn to take risks together, pursue an idea, fail, and learn from their setbacks by starting again, they develop deep trust and faith in cooperation.
