Since 2011 GEMSI has supported the development of collaborative community spaces around the world with a special focus on the Middle East and North Africa. Mentorship, relationship building, event collaboration and public conversations have been the hallmark of our work. After 5 years of leadership by GEMSI and many other organizations and individual the MENA region has seen a rapid increase in third spaces and a tighter integration with the innovation ecosystem around the world.

Starting in 2015 GEMSI is organizing two new initiatives called See Feel Do and Nuries. See Feel Do is a project which supports authentic creativity emerging from the collaborative community spaces around the world. Nuries is a for-profit initiative which is designed to both spread the See Feel Do message, but also bring in funds GEMSI can use for its programming.
