We are excited to announce a new partnership with the United States Consulate General in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and the University of Iowa. Together we have launched a one-year project to train Saudi women from the western region on entrepreneurship skills in emerging sectors like information technology, real estate, and e-commerce. This project will focus on fast-growing sectors in Saudi Arabia, in line with Vision 2030 goals to support economic growth in Saudi Arabia.
The project will provide 50 women with professional training and connections to local and international mentors that are necessary to start their businesses. The project is an initiative that provides demand-driven training linked to mentorship by successful Saudi and U.S. businesswomen as a key tool for reducing unemployment and expanding economic opportunities for Saudi women.
