Orange Jordan’s startup Accelerator Programme (BIG) held a webinar that focused on the MEA seeds Challenge and the opportunities it offers to startups that utilise the latest technologies to contribute to the progress of the Middle East and North Africa region.

The webinar hosted Orange Venture Investment Manager Grégoire de Padirac who told entrepreneurs how this opportunity will contribute to enhancing and developing their projects. A company from each country will receive up to 150,000 euro as a direct fund, marketing and technical support and mentorship from Orange for a year.

In addition, one company will have the opportunity to join Seedstars mentorship programme for three months. During this session, Padirac answered entrepreneurs’ questions regarding the latest challenge launched by the fund, and how it will impact their projects, stressing that it aims to boost competitiveness, initiative spirit and entrepreneurship for positive change.

This investment is directed to startups that employ technology to elevate different industries such as telecom, agriculture technologies, communications, e-commerce, electronic energy, electronic education, Fintech, health technologies, and e-government.
