This is to provide potential participants with an interactive platform to enhance their understanding of the award and the necessary requirements to register for the same. “The purpose of the awareness workshops is not only to interact with entrepreneurs but also organisations and entities to attract their attention and participation. We will host at the workshops this year some winners from the previous years to share their success stories and inspire others,” said Badriya al Hinai, the project manager of the award.

The workshops will focus on motivating people to prepare for the competition beforehand and spread awareness about the gains for participants.

The theme for this year’s award is ‘Success is a Shared Responsibility’ and to spread this message across different governorates, the Entrepreneurship Award collaborated with various organisations and people from several establishments.
