Founding Story

We are two founders, one of us was a "recruitment supervisor" at a national program in Jordan trying to match fresh graduates with market vacancies, however the other was an entrepreneurs who has his own ICT startup, one discussion about the difficulty of matching between graduates and jobs, the lack of opportunities in the market compared to the unique opportunity of being an entrepreneurs (inspired by our entrepreneur founder), this discussion was enough so that we think that a program "Empower Entrepreneurship" in Jordan is a must!
