AMMAN — Jordan's Information and Communications Technology Association int@j is set to launch the first electronic platform that includes a full database on entrepreneurship in Jordan, according to an int@j statement.

Bashar Hawamdeh, chairman of the ICT Association of Jordan, said: "The platform, which is the first of its kind in Jordan, seeks to enhance the business environment scientifically and practically based on accurate data."

He noted that the platform will support business start-ups by connecting investors — both institutions and individuals — with entrepreneurs.

Initiated in cooperation with Vardot, the platform will be launched in two phases: the first including a full database on business start-ups in Jordan as well as investors and funding parties, while the second phase will entail creating connections between entrepreneurs and investors so as to exchange ideas and interests in order to eventually stimulate entrepreneurship and economic growth in Jordan, according to the statement.

Hawamdeh said that int@j efforts are in line with His Majesty King Abdullah's vision Reach 2025, which seeks to make Jordan an ICT hub in the region, to digitise its economy, and to attract more investments and business start-ups from all over the world.

Int@j's chairman conveyed his gratitude to Vardot for supporting the national initiative by developing the e-platform which will be titled "StartupsJo".

For his part, Vardot CEO Mohammed Razem expressed his pride for taking part in the project which he said "will contribute to achieving the royal vision Reach 2025".

"We look forward to enriching the ICT sector and creating more investment opportunities through the new platform, which creates an interactive environment that fosters communication among the various involved parties," Razem commented.
