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.
It is amazing feeling to be mentoring, empowering and inspiring such an exceptional group of young entrepreneurs. I have been exposed to forums, meetings, seminars, angle investor meetings and start up events, but the experience and excitement I witnessed through my participation with the Oasis500 entrepreneurs has not been matched yet.
I have been running some of the largest and biggest co operations in the MENA region and I have enjoyed let’s of exceptional success and achievements during my two decades of occupying the top posts in the region, however, the joy and freshness as well as challenge I’m witnessing with the start ups and young entrepreneurs is exceptional.
I can see Jordan entering the era of being a start up nation. This brings unlimited opportunities and an open horizon for economic and social development. I’m very optimistic and believe that we will see many success stories and a growing attention and interest from international investors and multi-national corporations.
