, the MENA unit of the world’s largest non-profit business education organization Junior Achievement (JA) Worldwide, has officially unveiled the Youth Entrepreneurship Celebration for 2020. 

For the uninitiated, the INJAZ Al-Arab Youth Entrepreneurship Celebration has a long history of providing young and bright students in the region with high-quality mentorship across several practical business topics, among other things. Now in its 13th year, the 2020 rendition of the Celebration plans on repeating the success of the yesteryears.

The program spans six months, during which experts and mentors share various aspects of experiential learning and applications with students in MENA who won the INJAZ National Company Program in their respective countries.

This year, the INJAZ Entrepreneurship Ecosystem will include several prominent professionals who will be sharing their knowledge and experience on seven key business elements. The underlying objective behind this approach is to complement the students’ skills gained via the INJAZ National Company Program.

Each of these business elements will help enhance a student’s ability to develop a unique set of skills on various fronts including innovation, thinking, a firm grip on new technologies, growth and development, customer service, strategy formulation, and sustainability. 

Speaking at the launch, Akef Aqrabawi, President & CEO, INJAZ Al Arab, said “In the MENA region, we see such ambition and drive among the Arab youth. Our role at INJAZ Al-Arab is to provide students with unique learning experiences and guidance to set them up for success later in life. By partnering with key industry experts, we can enable powerful partnerships to create truly impactful programs for our students.  Since the company program began, we have been able to work with more than 100,000 students and we  look forward to continuing our work in the region to see how we can create a lasting impact.”
