The Jordan News Agency, Petra, said the entrepreneurship week concluded its weeklong meetings in Jordan on Wednesday.

The meeting was held under the patronage of HRH Princess Sumaya, chairperson of the Board of Trustees of the Princess Sumaya University for Technology (PSUT).

In her closing speech, the princess emphasized that the meeting provided a platform for successful, creative, and outstanding individuals from various fields to share their best work with others.

Regardless of the magnitude of a feat, it is nonetheless a feat worthy of being shared. Noting that pioneering goals may be deemed impossible by some, she insisted that having faith in the abilities of youth is an essential part of preparing for a prosperous future.

The Global Entrepreneurship Week is an exceptional opportunity to learn about the challenges and needs of other global markets, allowing young people to gain a better understanding of the characteristics of global markets and thus overcome the relatively limited local job market, Princess Sumaya told attendants.

The event was organized by the Queen Rania Center for Entrepreneurship (QRCE), in collaboration with Zain-ZINC Jordan’s platform, and was delivered on Princess Sumaya’s behalf by PSUT’s Acting President Wijdan Abul Haija.

The princess said that universities will serve as a hub for developing innovative and commercially viable solutions to the greatest existential, social, and economic challenges, such as climate change, clean energy, fresh water, food security, cancer, autism, and infectious diseases.

She pointed out that universities help develop innovation and entrepreneurship organically, and that connecting talented individuals, and working together as part of research teams to examine challenges make them more efficient.

The princess thanked the QRCE team, and other supporting partners for their hard work in making the 14th Global Entrepreneurship Week a success.

Muhammad Obeidat, director of the QRCE at PSUT, stressed the significance of the meeting, which brought together institutions of Jordan’s entrepreneurship system to celebrate Jordanian entrepreneurs, and provide them with guidance and opportunities to support the entrepreneurship process.

Tareq Bitar,  executive director of the Media, Communication, Innovation and Sustainability Department at Zain Jordan, praised the large number of Jordanian youths who attended the event, citing it as evidence of their interest in creativity and innovation.

The activities of the November 14–20 week focused on several topics, including environmental systems, education, inclusion, and politics. Ninety partners took part in nearly 500 events, both in person, and virtually.
