Majd Mashharawi from Gaza on business and politics

Episode #3

Majd is an engineer and founder of two companies in Gaza. A place that is often referred to as the biggest open air prison in the world. But instead of surrendering to her fate, Majd decided to create something under occupation, siege and patriarchy. In headscarf and high heels.

Her company Greencake is turning rubble and ashes into bricks and houses. Her company Sunbox is turning sunlight into electricity, and salt water into drinking water.

We talk about weddings, being betrayed, the sound of a rocket and social entrepreneurship.

Majd’s Utopia is flying over Gaza and seeing solar panels all over the roof tops.
