Airbus set to reveal winners of ‘Entaliq in KSA’

RIYADH, July 4, 2018

The winners of the ‘Entaliq in KSA’ initiative launched by Airbus in partnership with Taqnia Aeronautics and Saudi Arabian Airlines will be announced on July 9, an Airbus statement said.

The “Entaliq in KSA” initiative, which is nearing the end of its second edition, represents a nation-wide hunt for the most talented Saudi Arabian entrepreneurs. It challenges them to advance the national aerospace sector by providing innovative solutions to current industry challenges. Having kicked off its second edition in November 2017, the programme is specifically tailored to inspire and support entrepreneurs who possess an idea or business model in its start-up phase, said a statement.

The closing ceremony of the programme will be held at the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The top 10 finalists will get the opportunity to pitch their ideas to the jury of the ‘Entaliq in KSA’ initiative. The jury will then make a selection of the top three ideas and reveal the winners during the final ceremony, it said.

The three winners will each receive an incubation opportunity with the incubating partners of ‘Entaliq in KSA,’ namely Rockwell Collins, Altran and Qotuf, to develop their ideas further, it added.

The ceremony will be held under the patronage and in attendance of Prince Dr Turki Bin Saud bin Mohammed Al Saud, president of King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
