How do entrepreneurship, innovation and a sustainable private sector thrive in a stateless nation largely defined by conflict? Can they provide a stable solution to a perpetually unstable region? As Palestine continues to strive for full statehood, there are strong signs of growth in economic development throughout the region; change-makers in the private sector, entrepreneurs, innovators and philanthropists are all playing major roles in this unprecedented evolution.
