The Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) Jordan 2012, which is organised by Queen Rania Center for Entrepreneurship (QRCE), officially kicked off today.
GEW Jordan, whose activities will play out across the Kingdom until November 18 as part of a global event being organized in more than 120 countries around the world, seeks to promote the culture of entrepreneurship, and encourage youth to adopt it as the basis for Jordan’s economy development, said a statement.
Sponsored by Shop and Ship which is powered by Aramex, the event’s agenda will include a slate of activities designed to fuel the spirit of entrepreneurship among Jordanian youth, including specialised workshops, lectures and seminars, along with the launch of several initiatives and field programs that adopt innovations across the kingdom.
QRCE’s executive director, Eng Farhan Kalaldeh, said: “We are pleased to host the GEW for the fourth year, offering an ideal platform to spotlight Jordan’s nascent culture of entrepreneurship, and celebrate innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life and drive economic growth. GEW is a great opportunity for participants to explore their potential as self-starters and connect to potential collaborators, mentors and investors.”
Kalaldeh noted that this year’s event programmes focus on various areas such as microfinance and entrepreneurship. – TradeArabia News Service
