AMMAN — “Farah Spark”, corporate accelerator of the Farah Medical Campus, and TechWorks, a Crown Prince Foundation (CPF) initiative, on Saturday signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU)  to enhance joint work and harness common efforts and resources to support entrepreneurial and start-up sectors in Jordan and the region.

The agreement also aims to find creative solutions to improve the medical sector and increase its global competitiveness, the Jordan News Agency, Petra reported. 

The MoU was signed by Farah Spark CEO Yanal Kilani and TechWorks Director Ismail Haqqi. 

Haqqi commented: “The MoU establishes a real future business partnership and will open the door for everyone to use the facilities of TechWorks to make prototypes for medical equipment, which enhances Jordan’s distinguished position in this sector.”

For his part, Kilani said that Jordan’s youth “possess enormous energy” in the entrepreneurial and creative fields, especially in the medical sector, calling for support and appropriate guidance to youth to realise their creative ideas.

The current global conditions due to the COVID-19 pandemic necessitate support for entrepreneurs and start-up owners in a bid to find solutions for emerging challenges, he added. 

TechWorks is a CPF initiative that is a “society-based digital Fabrication Laboratory” (FabLab), which includes modern equipment and aims to encourage technical education and strengthen the innovation system in Jordan. It “opens the door” to developing ideas and converting them into products, Petra said.
