The programme, organized by Injaz Oman, falls within both companies’ respective strategies to support education and promote entrepreneurship.
The agreement was signed by Khaula Bint Hamoud Al Harthy, Executive Director of Injaz Oman, and Abdulaziz Mohammed Al Balushi, Group Chief Executive Officer of Ominvest.
"This agreement is a valuable addition to Injaz Oman,” said Al Harthy. “It demonstrates the interest of the private sector, specifically Ominvest, in supporting innovation and entrepreneurship. We are pleased with this partnership, which is an important step in supporting Oman's ambitious youth, and which will open wider horizons for students participating in the Student Company Programme and competition.”
“We are pleased to be collaborating with Injaz Oman to help support the Omani youth in developing their skills and providing them with the necessary entrepreneurship tools,” said Al Balushi. “The Student Company Programme is aligned with Ominvest’s corporate social responsibility strategy in supporting education, training, and encouraging entrepreneurship.”
The Student Company Programme, which is in its seventh edition this year, aims to provide a unique learning process for undergraduate students to help them establish and manage leading companies, explore their potential ambitions and opportunities in the labour market, enrich their academic performance, support positive behaviour, and help them gain access to the entrepreneurial world.
