Oasis500 the first of its kind in Jordan and the MENA region offers the only comprehensive entrepreneurship training, seed investment, acceleration and mentorship program in the region. We, as a leading early stage and seed investment company, not only give you the training you need to start, but we help you start your business through seed capital investment and a complete acceleration, incubation and mentorship program which will help you grow your business through the proof of concept stages in order to attract follow-on investments.

In addition to ICT and IT, Oasis500 now has a second investment track that is for Creative Industries. The Creative Industries track is dedicated to all residents in the MENA region, focusing on self-sustainable projects in many creative sectors including:

Since its launch in the summer of 2014, we have aimed to capitalize on untapped creative potential in order to support the economy and foster the arts in the MENA region as well as develop the art, design and media sector to become another success story like the ICT, which continues to nourish and grow our economy.

Aspiring artists-turned-entrepreneurs undergo a weeklong, business training bootcamp followed by a training session that is tailored to each creative track. Our programs are bilingual and are executed in both Arabic and English.

Our training program focuses on building business skills and professional communication, in addition to training in the field of the required area of specialization.

During the 5-day Bootcamp you will learn how to:

  • Successfully start / grow your business
  • Pitch your idea
  • Market your business
  • Develop your entrepreneurial skills
  • Design and validate business model
  • Develop a financial model

We aim to accelerate our Creative Industries startups by providing primary investment and business enhancement. Our companies have the opportunity to secure investment and acceleration, and a 100-day incubation period.

We will then offer exposure and publishing through regional and local events, including but not limited to roadshows, pop-up shops, art weeks, management consultations and facilitated deals with publishers.

We provide mentorship by partnering the artist with appropriate masters in the industry. We open our extensive network of Angel investors so that artists can secure further investments and follow-on funding.
