There are many initiatives, both public and private, that are looking to spur innovation and entrepreneurship in the region. However, each entity will have its own area of expertise, which is why cooperation often brings great outcomes for both entities, and possibly even third parties, involved.
Recently, the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Centre (Sheraa) and Endeavor, a global non-profit organisation in the high-impact entrepreneurship movement, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), to ensure alignment and closer collaboration of both parties.
Najla Al-Midfa, CEO of Sheraa, said, “Sheraa and Endeavor have a shared mission to support entrepreneurs as they grow their global impact. This partnership enables us to work together to cultivate a pool of high-impact startups that contribute to innovation and job creation, and would eventually gain access to Endeavor’s prestigious network. [...] We look forward to seeing this collaboration lead to a thriving, accessible entrepreneurship ecosystem and increased job creation across the region.”
