7 Palestinian startups vie for Arabreneur investment at recent pitch event


“These startups are as good as any in Toronto, Barcelona, or London,” said Palestinian entrepreneur extraordinaire Dr. Abdulmalek Al-Jaber at the Arabreneur angel pitching event in Jerusalem last Monday April 7th. The afternoon gathering, hosted at the Notre Dame Center, featured top talent from Palestine’s startup community. The quality of the startups was matched by the beauty of the venue, an open-air rooftop overlooking East Jerusalem and the Dome of the Rock. As the sun set over the city, seven entrepreneurs pitched their startups to a crowd of angel investors, government officials, and venture capitalists. I was there to check out the investment opportunities for Oasis500, and here’s what I saw:

SooShef is a recipe engine that could either be its own stand-alone site or integrated into other recipe platforms. Instead of guiding users to make recipes based on what they want to eat, Sooshef helps them make recipes based on what ingredients they already have on hand. One thing they have going in their favor is that they already have a large database of content.
Blue Engine is a multi-lingual website builder for the Arab world. This is a competitive market space with several global players (and regional player Websity) but the team claims to have a more powerful solution that can build anything from a personal blog to a corporate website.
