"Funding remains a key challenge that entrepreneurs face today," said Rasha Manna, Managing Director, Endeavor Jordan, in a statement about the event. "For this reason, we made sure that this year's program addressed funding issues during the workshops, speeches and panel discussions. Having prominent entrepreneurs come in and give personal accounts of their own journeys was especially beneficial, and I am sure participants walked out with a renewed sense of purpose and confidence in their startups."
