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.
