I recently had the pleasure of meeting with Gordon McConnell, the Acting Director New Ventures & Entrepreneurship, in the Entrepreneurship Center at KAUST. He was telling me about all the programs they have for both students and community members here at KAUST.
Avid readers will know that I have a passion for social innovation and using technology to improve/build communities. While my focus has mainly been large nonprofit organizations, I have also worked with many small nonprofits and socially-focused entrepreneurs to help them with their communication, online presences, PR, networking, and other related efforts. So, when Gordon told me that there would be free classes for anyone wanting to learn about business and entrepreneurialism at KAUST, I was blown away.
That’s right: I said free classes for anyone wanting to learn about business and entrepreneurialism at KAUST. Maybe I’m just a geek, but that is something I think should be celebrated in a big way!
So for those of you who are interested in business classes and entrepreneurship events, and you are located here at KAUST, check out their lineup events…. I hope to see you there!
