4-day intensive and comprehensive business & entrepreneurship workshop
Oasis500 is an endeavor that strives to change the entrepreneurial landscape within the IT sector in Jordan, and it is the ideal opportunity for start-up companies to translate their ideas into realities. I truly hope that through my encounter with these amazing entrepreneurs as a mentor, I am able to provide the guidance and motivation to help them achieve their goals and aspirations and ensure optimal results. In fact, there is a lot that I have learnt from these young entrepreneurs with all their enthusiasm, especially about the dynamics of this new generation. Being an entrepreneur myself, having faced all the different challenges while establishing my own company, especially in the early days, is where I came to believe that it is essential to have an entity that supports entrepreneurs and provides the much needed mentorship. It makes us extremely proud to witness the increasing number of entrepreneurs and Oasis500 participants, as it is a very positive indication of the level of and caliber of our resources.
The most exciting thing about mentoring Oasis500 startups is the exposure it has given me to the new generation. So far I was fortunate to meet the young ones who are enthusiastic, bold, sometimes aggressive, passionate, proud and eager to listen and learn. True, they are always in a hurry to move up the ladder, make money fast and become celebrities…. but guess what….. Why not ! We live in a very fast moving world where only the ones who are slow will be left behind. But, those who are dynamic, fast and quick to embrace change are the ones who will make it. Sometimes I feel that I have been mentored by those young people and not the way around. I say so, because after every mentoring session, I leave with high energy, optimism and with urgency to move faster.
I don’t think I exaggerate when I say that Oasis500 is probably one the best things that happened in Jordan in the past decade or so. Oasis500 has changed the way the local community thinks about work. Fresh graduates and the unemployed as well parents no longer think that a job in government or in a private sector company is the only way to get employed. Oasis500 has shown that they can create a job and own a business.
