The Sharjah Foundation to Support Pioneering Entrepreneurs (RUWAD), in collaboration with the Sharjah Department of Economic Development and the University of Sharjah Alumni Association, held a two-day "Financial Technology" training session at the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences. The Dr Hussam Abu Al-Dahab programme drew 10 students and graduates.
"This programme encourages students and graduates to become entrepreneurs and use the foundation's services, such as financing, commercial franchise rights, and the Ruwwad Virtual Incubator," said Hamad Ali Abdullah Al Mahmoud, Director of the Sharjah Foundation to Support Pioneering Entrepreneurs (RUWAD). This enables organisations to create successful virtual initiatives while lowering initial costs."
