Passing knowhow and sharing knowledge in a very safe environment is a very fulfilling experience. Being proud and optimistic about the future of our younger generation, give me the drive and the passion to have as many one on one meetings with the young entrepreneurs, who had the initiative to start new ventures in the IT world, either in developing new services, new products; new systems and tools, and being creative in a world that is hungry for creativity and out of the box thinking. It is our duty to encourage, motivate and support such initiatives that are of value creation to all stakeholders; and that are required to overcome the economic challenges being faced in Jordan. Entrepreneurial mindedness is what we need for a better future; hence we nurture these start-ups through the mentoring programs organized by Oasis 500; and it is a very rewarding process for both mentors and mentees. I personally enjoy and get inspired every time I watch these highly motivated entrepreneurs driving the change we all look for. The world is changing very fast; hence we need to be faster… as said: “Big will not beat small anymore; it will be the fast beating the slow” Rupert Murdoch
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.
