Oasis500, a leading seed stage investment and business accelerator, and the first of its kind in Jordan and the MENA region, welcomed back the young innovator; Naser Al-Badareen, following his participation in the International Creative Business Cup competition in Copenhagen, Denmark.
After hosting the national Creative Business Cup Competition in Jordan, Oasis500 sent its 16-year-old national winner, Naser Al-Badareen, to compete against the national winners from other countries at the International Creative Business Cup competition, held annually in Copenhagen – Denmark.
Creative entrepreneurs from more than 40 countries have presented more than a 100 pitches in front of an international jury. Despite being the youngest participant, Al-Badareen’s project was chosen as one of the top 45 projects in the competition.
It’s worth mentioning that the Creative Business Cup event is much wider than introducing the business concept in front of an international jury only to win the competition; it’s a valuable opportunity for entrepreneurs to get an exceptional media coverage, and the possibility to scale up internationally and present their ideas to international investors and potential partners. The competition aims to support the innovative entrepreneurs by helping them in strengthening their business and management skills, allowing them to establish their own businesses depending on their skills. The Creative Business Cup also works on developing and improving the emerging companies’ managerial and commercial skills.
Proceeding the awarding ceremony, Naser Al-Badareen, the Creative Business Cup national winner from Jordan, expressed his pride in representing Jordan in this international event, saying: “Being here and competing in the International Creative Business Cup is a great privilege for me, as it’s a dream for many around the world. I met a lot of innovators and creative people as well as VIPs such as Prince Joachim of Denmark, the US Ambassador to Denmark, investors, and other important people and successful businessmen. I also met the other national winners from the other countries, and learnt a lot from their experiences, and I’ll invest them this knowledge to elevate and enhance my ideas; to give more and present the best.”
“Oasis500 is proud of the young entrepreneur, Al-Badareen, and we strongly believe that other Jordanian and Arab youth have what it takes to participate in other similar international competitions. Oasis500 aims to support and encourage entrepreneurship and creativity, in addition to helping young entrepreneurs develop their businesses, by hosting local and international competitions and holding workshops and programs here in Jordan.” said Mr. Yousef Hamidaddin, Oasis500’s CEO.
