Misk Initiatives is launching a training program that will offer students and recent graduates practical experience in leading investment in the region and target future industry leaders.
The Initiatives Center at Misk, the nonprofit established by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has partnered with the Saudi Company for Bold Investment to launch the Misk-Saudi Company for Bold Investment Program.
The program focuses on cooperative training, and aims to develop skills among Saudi youth through training opportunities that strengthen their talents and creativity.
Among the initiatives of the private sector incentive plan is a proposal to fill financing gaps in emerging companies by investing SR 2.8 billion ($750 million) to support startups and enterprising investors.
The program targets male and female students in their final academic year and recent graduates in the fields of accounting, finance, marketing, information technology, human resources and law.
Students who wish to enroll in the program must have a grade point average of at least four out of five or 3.2 out of 4, as well as mastery of English.
The program is due to be launched in mid-January 2020 for six months.
