EYouth Learning (EYouth), a Saudi Arabia-based edtech platform that provides youth-specific programs across various fields, and Value Makers Studio (VMS), a Saudi Arabia-based venture studio, have partnered up to launch SaudiPreneur, a program to encourage and support entrepreneurship among the Kingdom's youth.

Expected to be the largest program of its kind in supporting the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Saudi Arabia, the three-month-long program will offer intensive educational training content, as well as personalized mentoring and guidance sessions. The end of each program course will see the best business ideas and projects receiving financial support as well.

Leveraging the opportunities that arise in a country that currently has 11 million young people, SaudiPreneur will thus offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to gain necessary skills and capabilities that can help turn their ideas into real-world projects.The SaudiPreneur program also aims to highlight and channel the energy and creativity that the youth possess in creating positive change in society and the wider economy

With a focus on championing sustainable development and economic growth, SaudiPreneur's end goal is to enhance the Kingdom's position as a global entrepreneurial hub. For more information on SaudiPreneur, click here.
