Verona

U.S.-based tech startup Verona has created a tongue-in-cheek app that it hopes will help bridge the gap between Israelis and Palestinians. Named after the city at the heart of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, the app allows Israelis and Palestinians living around the world to connect using a Tinder-style format. Once matched, the interested parties can meet and as founder Matthew Nolan says, "spark world peace." The app doesn’t require that users be from Israel or Palestine, and instead simply encourages Jewish people and Arab people to get together.
