Mentorship sessions for MITEF Saudi Startup competition conclude in Dammam

The mentorship sessions of the third MITEF Saudi Startup competition are being held in Jeddah, Riyadh and Dammam.
The mentorship sessions of the third MITEF Saudi Startup competition conclude today in Dammam at the Aramco Center for Entrepreneurship.
In partnership with Olou, the permanent partner for guidance and consulting, the mentorship program focuses on a range of topics pertinent to any individual or company seeking to begin a business.
Each team has been provided with mentors and guides specializing in all aspects of entrepreneurship who cover topics including the art of brainstorming, how to design business models, customer discovery, and marketing and financing. Entrepreneurs also study unique business models and inspiring entrepreneurship stories.
The first session was in Riyadh and hosted by Dulani Business Center, one of the key Social Development Bank programs, supporting and advising the 45 teams who have qualified for the first stage of the competition. Following the Riyadh leg of the orientation, the program moved on to the Abdul Latif Jameel Center for Continuous Learning in Jeddah.
The 45 teams qualifying in three categories — Ideas, Startups, and Social Enterprise — will face the second round of judging later this month when the 27 finalists will be announced. The winners will be announced on March 3 in Riyadh at a function in honor of Majid bin Abdullah Al-Qassabi, minister of commerce and investment.
