Prizes of up to SAR 220,000 (approximately US$ 60,000) and specialist guidance, workshops and training are available as part of the latest MIT Enterprise Forum (MITEF) Saudi Arabia competition, in partnership with Bab Rizq Jameel.
Under this year’s theme of ‘Create your tomorrow’, the competition celebrates Saudi Arabia’s most innovative business minds and helps the country work towards its Saudi 2030 Vision.
Saudi Arabian entrepreneurs are being encouraged to enter in one of three categories: ideas, startup, and social enterprise. Entrants who advance to the competition’s final stages will have the chance to take part in the Saudi StartSmart Forum, a MITEF program designed to encourage, motivate, and guide entrepreneurs to success.
Nine of the winners will also be invited to the 11th season of the MITEF Pan-Arab competition.
Fady Mohammed Jameel, President of Community Jameel International, said: “As Saudi Arabia actively encourages the growth of entrepreneurship, competitions such as MITEF Saudi Arabia are a platform for real change and give budding entrepreneurs the chance to contribute to our country’s future.
“MITEF Saudi Arabia and Community Jameel are proud to support entrepreneurs who are keen to contribute to a stable, diverse, and sustainable economy.”
