Project description

SMEs are considered the core of the Palestinian economy because of their fundamental role in the process of economic development. The interest in SMESs has become a target for many developing and industrial countries alike, due to the ability of these projects to contribute and increase GDP and economic growth of the country. Therefore, the cooperation between the Palestinian Ministry of Education and Higher Education, and the Palestinian businesspersons working abroad came out from their interest in the subject of youth in order to reduce their thinking of migration, reduce unemployment rate, and enhance the role of entrepreneurship in the country ... Young people suffer from several problems, which are not limited to the problem of funding, but the need for guidance and technical assistance that guide them how to start a successful and sustainable project. Therefore, the thought of guidance, support, and the provision of minimum funding is the starting point in the right path to build entrepreneurial and successful projects.
