The Arab Innovation Academy (AIA) returns to Qatar in 2021 with a new Online Edition. The entrepreneurship program will take over 12 weeks in the Fall semester of 2021 and gather around 200 participants from around the Arab region.  

We are also happy to announce an official collaboration with one of the leading universities in Qatar. This year AIA program is an accredited online course integration at Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU).

As AIA is a graded course collaboration with HBKU, the university has opened the course for cross-registration, allowing students from other universities to earn credits from HBKU.

AIA aims to support university students who are aspiring tech entrepreneurs by offering a  unique accelerated mode of experiential learning to help students turn ideas into start‐ups in only 12 weeks. The new online curricular program exposes participants to real-life experiences and experiments on developing and launching new tech ventures in a real marketplace with real customer feedback.  

For 12 weeks, young entrepreneurs will work toward an important goal: Helping Arab youths develop entrepreneurial skills, a global network, and an innovative mindset. AIA’s participants have a great mission to shape the region’s future, not only by attacking regional challenges but by innovating market-driven technology with real global impact.  

To create a startup in just 12 weeks, the Arab Innovation Academy’s young entrepreneurs will virtually come together alongside top industry professionals from renowned Arab companies and around the globe. With inspiring keynotes, assertive mentoring, and engaging online learning experiences, together, we can change the world!

The application period starts very soon! Keep an eye on our social media not to miss the chance to apply for the program.

The Arab Innovation Academy is a joint venture of Qatar Science & Technology Park and the  European Innovation Academy
