Ameen Ma’aitah, 25



Riadology was launched by Ameen to address the lack of social innovation platforms for entrepreneurial initiatives in Irbid. By directing youth’s energy, encouraging their creative ideas and helping them develop realistic and profitable projects, the platform aims to help youth and marginalized groups meet the challenges of the entrepreneurial world, in addition to creating real employment opportunities in both the public and private sectors. Riadology brings together pioneering minds in discussion groups, and hones their entrepreneurial skills through workshops, training sessions, and opportunities to participate in conferences and seminars. Participants gain access to information on funding and grants available to small businesses and non-profit projects. The future looks bright for Riadology; the organization plans to launch a magazine and provide additional specialized training sessions in the near future.
