Queen Rania launches new award for start-ups

 

DUBAI – Do you have a business start-up or innovation that is helping improve education in the Arab world? You could win $100,000.

Queen Rania recently launched the Queen Rania Award for Education Entrepreneurship in the Arab World, which offers up to three grants totaling $200,000 (Dh734,000) to help start-ups.

The winner will receive $100,000, with the runners-up getting US $50,000 each.

The competition is open to anyone living in the Middle East and Africa region and closes on November 10.

Applicants must have an idea, product and existing customers although they don’t have to be revenue generating.

Applicants can send their entries through educationentrepreneurs.org. Finalists will be selected by a panel of judges in December, but winners will be revealed in February.

The grant scheme wants to encourage entrepreneurs with innovative approaches to addressing learning challenges in the Arab world. GAD/Expat Media
