Jordan iPARK announces expansion
Amman, March 4, 2013
Amman-based iPARK, the multi-facility incubation park for start-up businesses in technology, has announced a major enhancement of the facilities and services it offers to early-stage Jordanian entrepreneurs.
The strategic location of iPARK, next to major knowledge institutions such as the University of Jordan, Princess Sumaya University for Technology and The Royal Scientific Society, makes it be a hub for technology development and business innovation in Jordan.
Having proven the strength and validity of an incubation model that was presented at Mena ICT Forum 2004, the 2013 forum coincides with the launch of its expanded presence.
The enhanced iPARK offers greater incubation capacity in terms of physical space, as well as increased value-added services, in order to ensure the continued success of this national program with a regional impact, said senior park officials.
"iPARK is proud to build on its contributions to the Kingdom’s vital socio-economic development, and to offer its services to a new generation of Jordanian entrepreneurs and innovators," they stated.
iPARK had initially partnered with int@j at the Mena ICT Forum in 2004 to champion the role of business incubation programs in fostering technology startups. At that time, four incubated ICT companies were presented to King Abdullah II and to participants at the forum.
In the intervening years, iPARK has pursued its mission to incubate the most promising ICT startups and to support innovative entrepreneurs.
iPARK has successfully graduated more than 50 companies, many of which provide ICT services to Fortune 100 companies in their strategic areas of operation. Many iPARK-incubated companies have captured significant international and regional market shares.-TradeArabia News Service
