Alhurra Spotlights Entrepreneurs

During the week of November 15-21, Alhurra filmed over 20 reports to mark Global Entrepreneurship Week, highlighting entrepreneurship in Morocco, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan and Egypt.

Working with the Ewing Marion Kaufman Foundation, Alhurra identified numerous competitions throughout the Middle East that encourage young people to generate new ideas and seek better ways of doing things.

Theses reports started airing in mid-Novembner on Al Youm and will continue into December.

Providing the American perspective, Alhurra filmed the “Movers & Changers” initiative co-sponsored by New York Stock Exchange and MTV and hosted by financial television personality Jim Cramer and Nick Cannon. The competition awards a $25,000 prize.

The series also covered the 2010 Harvard Arab Weekend (HAW) which this year promoted leadership in the private and public sectors. The event brings together the best and brightest from the Middle East and North Africa to Harvard to dialogue among leaders in entrepreneurship, business and government.

Coverage of the event will include an interview with the keynote speaker Queen Noor.

Once the individual reports have aired, Alhurra will produce a “best of” entrepreneurship special to be broadcast early next year.
