How to build your vision and mission statements toward a business plan formulation?


Accumulating responsibilities/ authorities in one side of the ship causes sinking/ dipping it. Then, we wonder why the ship is not sailing!

Saudi Entrepreneurs: why thinking local market while global markets are open and easy to access? Re-think!

Sometimes, thinking local market is a kill. Inspect other markets. Your produce or services could be needed somewhere else. Good luck. Jamal

Can we say more Saudi students who have interests in entrepreneurship are in UK Universities?

Looking at the views rate, in numbers and countries, for the site (Entrepreneurship in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) could give us a hint (not validated, yet could be a possible hypothesis) regarding which Saudi students society have more interests in entrepreneurship information and news. From today’s numbers (July 16th) and aside to the views from Saud Arabia, the number of views from UK is doubled compared to the number of views from the USA.

Can we say that Saud students in UK have more interest in entrepreneurship in the Kingdom? If true, why and is there any linkage between the climate of UK education and entrepreneurship?

المملكة العربية السعودية هي مركز الجاذبية للاعمال الريادية للعالم خاصة في مجال التصنيع والخدمات الصغيرة والمتوسطة المتعلقة بالزيت والغاز والبتركيماويات
