6 day intensive and comprehensive business training program for ICT and IT companies & startups
It was a much appreciated opportunity to mentor a number of ambitious and innovative entrepreneurs who never ceased to impress us with new concepts and intelligent designs.
Partaking in this initiative, my mission was to help broaden the business horizon of the entrepreneurs, stressing on vital issues which matter to the potential investors but more importantly challenging their business models and ensure efficiency of assumptions and projections in order to guarantee sustainability and linear growth of the business before considering valuate appreciation. In many cases, I delved into the actual business processes and explored with the entrepreneurs ways to enhance the operation, create more add-on value services to increase revenues and suggested new markets to focus on. At the end, this opportunity turned out to be a learning experience for me as much as it was designed as a mentorship.
In fact, my company is now an angel investor with one of such entrepreneurs. If this says anything, it testifies for the successful model Oasis500 has adopted and the seriousness of the team behind it as well as a clear acknowledgement of the unlocked talent of the youth of Jordan and the willingness of the private sector leaders to join aboard successful and well planned partnerships.
It was really great and fulfilling engagement for me and for the startup that I was lucky to work with. I promise you it was more than just giving advice here and there, or meeting in weekly rhythm, it is a two ways discussion and challenging approaches, ideas, ways of going to market with smart, sharp and full of energy individuals.
I thought it will be a learning and giving experience and guidelines, no I was wrong. It was rethinking and getting push back all of the time (most of the time I managed to convince them).
I am proud of the startups that I was engaged with and most of these startups are close friends or companies I am an investor and board member with the founders.
Feeling proud of each one of them and what they are achieving daily, companies like Zaytouneh, Gallery Al Sharq, Gate express and others are shining start and sure they will still in the start of a great journey, Thank you Oasis 500 for this opportunity to get engaged to the most talented individuals in our country and the region.
