Event organiser Experiment Events has announced the third edition of the Entrepreneur’s Conclave, this year themed as “Dive into your Destiny.”
The annual competition aims to find the best young Omani business owners and help them boost their profile in the market.
A shortlist of 25 candidates will be drawn up, who will be mentored by 10 established local and international business experts during the competition.
The first phase, “Learn”, will be held at Jebel Sifah on May 6. It will put entrepreneurs through real-time scenarios managing an organisation, with high-pressure situations. Two further stages will be held before the final event on May 30. Finalists will also get an opportunity to pitch their ventures to investors, funding organisations and other entrepreneurs.
SABCO Media is partnering Entrepreneur’s Conclave and is offering RO10,000 worth of media packages to the winner.
Last year’s winner was Jokha Nasser al Hussaini, a female engineer and CEO of Shumookh Engineering Consultancy.
