Improving Jordan’s Entrepreneurial Ecosystem

In March 2024, Umniah officially partnered with Startupbootcamp to manage and enhance The Tank—the company’s business incubator—with the aim of strengthening Jordan’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Together, Umniah and Startupbootcamp will conduct six-week challenges focusing on key areas such as 5G, edge computing, cybersecurity, cloud computing, AI and machine learning, communication technologies, software-defined networking, and IoT. Participants will be guided through idea development and pitch preparation, culminating in a final presentation.

Commenting on this partnership, Faisal Qamhiyah, CEO of Umniah, said, “This partnership reaffirms our commitment to supporting Jordanian startups and recognizing the pivotal role of entrepreneurship in boosting the competitiveness of the national economy amid rapidly evolving market dynamics. Updating our strategy to align with emerging technologies and evolving market and consumer needs is essential to ensure that The Tank attracts the appropriate startups and achieves its objectives.”
