AMMAN — The Youth Entrepreneurship Training Programme organised by the USAID Jordan Competitiveness Program (USAID JCP) and the King Abdullah II Fund for Development on Saturday honoured its second group of graduates, a USAID statement said.

The participants included students and graduates from five universities: the Jordan University of Science and Technology, German-Jordanian University, Princess Sumaya University for Technology, Al al-Bayt University and the Hashemite University.

The training programme trained participants to be “successful entrepreneurs” by honing their abilities to assess the business environment, convert ideas into projects, and develop effective marketing plans, according to the statement.

“The training methodology was built based on practical case studies and examples so that participants gain a substantive understanding of entrepreneurship, competitiveness and innovation,” the statement quoted USAID JCP’s Chief of Party Wissam Rabadi as saying.
