From Gaza to Japan: Building Entrepreneurs for Social Change

Gaza Japan Social Innovation Japan

On 15 November 2018, Social Innovation Japan hosted “From Gaza to Japan: Building Entrepreneurs for Social Change”.

We were so inspired to hear from Sara Alafifi, core member of Gaza’s first tech hub, Gaza Sky Geeks.

From humble beginnings, GSG has grown into the leading co-working space, startup accelerator, and technology education hub in Gaza.

Despite challenging circumstances, the organisation continues to thrive and empower the next generation to find jobs, start businesses, and flourish.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the dialogue, and to our partners Code Chrysalis for hosting us!

We hope that this is just the beginning of a new friendship between GSG and Japan, and are looking forward to seeing more collaborations between Japan and #Gaza going forward 🙏
