Who needs $70,000? Who doesn't?!

For those of you who haven't heard yet (yes my 3 readers, I'm talking to you now), there's an awesome opportunity to start your own business. For the last two years, the Queen Rania Center for Entrepreneurship has been helping those who want to depart from the traditional rat race start their own ventures. In a land like Jordan, with its great dearth of available venture capital, $70,000 can make the difference allowing a young person (or not so young) to realize their dreams. I'm pleased to be able to help spread the word on this initiative which is co-sponsored this year with Google and KADDB.

In cooperation with Google and King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau (KADDB) , the Queen Rania Center for Entrepreneurship (QRCE) has officially launched the 3rd year of the Queen Rania National Entrepreneurship Competition (QRNEC) with$70,000 of cash prizes in addition to in-kind services provided by the Centre to the winners in order to support the their mission in creating successful startups.

So, the QRNE Competition is now open for all entrepreneurs - whether you are a university student or an aspiring entrepreneur, so, everyone is invited to apply and compete for $70,000 of cash awards.The additional interesting advantage for this year is that Google is offering an additional cash award for the best the online business plan,in addition to the special award that KADDB is offering for the best business plan for defense and security.

If you have a business idea in any discipline of technology (biotechnology, nanotechnology, information & communication technology (ICT), agricultural technology, environmental technology, water, energy or any other disciplines of technology) that is likely to win, present it to the Queen Rania Center for Entrepreneurship (QRCE) through the its website before 19/6/2008 and start on the road to success!

QRCE has established many invaluable partnerships, this year, with many institutions contribute to the support of the center and the competition. These institutions include: Google , King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau, Orange, Jordan Commercial Bank , Jordan Dubai Capital, Jeeran and Jordan Business.

So, take advantage of this awesome opportunity and maybe you will win the $70,000...

Happy Business Planning!
