20 startups join elite Saudi business boost program

Twenty young entrepreneurs have joined an elite Saudi enterprise program aimed at boosting their business startups.

The innovators selected from throughout the Kingdom and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region will take part in the three-month Misk 500 Accelerator Program.

The training project, organized by the Initiatives Center of the Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz Foundation (Misk) represented by Misk Innovation, was launched on Sept. 10, in Riyadh.

Hundreds of entrepreneurs applied to participate in the special training scheme designed to develop their ideas and help make their companies business success stories.

The selection process took place last July and the latest group will become the second wave of trainees after 19 startups joined the accelerator last May.
