KAUST President Dr. Tony F. Chan said that the innovation skills gained by building a new company and marketing will remain with students throughout their careers. He added that KAUST worked in partnership with the Stanford Center for Professional Development to offer the course to all students, and will continue to do so in the future.
The course is part of KAUST’s efforts to contribute to the development of an economy in the Kingdom based on innovation and knowledge. The university has supported more than 240 startups through its entrepreneurship programs, and is focusing on enhancing the incubation environment for innovation in the country through the provision of education that can act as a transformative force to unleash the full potential of students.
