Recently, the Saudi Ministry of Tourism has introduced the second phase of the “Tourism Entrepreneurs Bootcamp”. It’s an intensive program that’s primarily targeted toward entrepreneurs to transform their innovative ideas into sustainable businesses.
The program is divided into three phases. It aims to give wannabe food and beverage, cultural activity related, travel and tourism, sports and transportation entrepreneurs the chance as well as tools to grow their creative ideas and put up a strong foundation of competencies.
To quote Anas Al-Shaaer, innovators and entrepreneurs support general manager at the Ministry of Tourism, “We have a great opportunity to work in a sector that pursues and contributes to multiple areas of development. This pertains to the development of the regions in the Kingdom that present immense opportunities for entrepreneurs and innovators; it pertains to the entrepreneurship culture in the Kingdom and, last but not least, we develop the tourism sector.”
“The bootcamps, in this context, specifically are an opportunity for soon-to-be entrepreneurs and those with initial business ideas to start positioning their businesses, develop ideas further, build prototypes and network with like-minded innovators and entrepreneurs.”
“As such, our bootcamps provide a platform for exchange, multiplication and skills development that will establish a broader foundation and visibility for us from MT to understand where the talent is, how we can continue to nurture it, and how business activities become a strong viable option for youth to be thriving on a new sector and the opportunities it presents.”
