KEYSS Project Join Hands with Microsoft Arabia To Boost Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Saudi Arabia
Microsoft Arabia and KEYSS Project announced a new collaboration to accelerate the digital transformation of startups and SMEs throughout the Kingdom and stimulate innovation in accordance with the Saudi Vision 2030. This collaboration will give entrepreneurs and startups trained by the KEYSS Project access to the Microsoft for Startups Founders Hub, a platform that empowers startups with industry-leading services, expert guidance, and the essential technology needed to build a future-proofed startup.
Microsoft's Zainab Alamin, VP of Digital Transformation & Sustainability, expressed excitement about the cooperation with the KEYSS Project since it coincides with Microsoft's aim to strengthen the Kingdom's startup ecosystem. “Through this partnership, young entrepreneurs and startups will have access to the latest technologies and digital skills needed to innovate, bring their ideas to life, and advance their business growth and success.” Alamin also noted that the partnership supports Microsoft’s efforts to be the preferred and trusted partner for innovation across all sectors of the economy in the Saudi market.
Saudi entrepreneurs and innovators will also have access to cutting-edge learning tools that will enable them to leverage cutting-edge cloud technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and data analytics to launch successful businesses, improve performance, boost productivity, cut costs, and meet their long-term development goals.
Commenting on this partnership, Dr. Sarah Mohammad Ghaleb, Founder of the KEYSS Project, noted that startups often struggle with limited resources and gaining the proper guidance, especially when starting a business. “We have trained thousands of youths across the Kingdom to be more confident in their skills as civic leaders. Through our collaboration with Microsoft, we are providing them with access to the latest technologies and digital skills.”
