Fez – The Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES), scheduled to take place on November 19-21, 2014 in Marrakech, is set to organize a competition of Moroccan Student Innovation Challenge.
The competition aims to motivate Moroccan students’ innovation and ideas, as well as encourage entrepreneurship.
The competition requires sending descriptive outlines of practical creative projects. Approximately 200 students will be chosen and given free access to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit.
The summit is a perfect platform for students to take part in various activities, including participation in workshops, listening to world class speakers on entrepreneurship and innovation, in addition to networking with investors and peer entrepreneurs. The projects of selected students will be presented in a display area of the Innovation Village.
According to the official website of the summit, applicants must be enrolled full time in a Moroccan university, and selection will depend on the degree of originality, feasibility, and clarity of ideas.
Special attention will be given to projects that develop the integration of youth and women into the economy as well as those that are less demanding and more advantageous for people who live below the poverty line.
The Financial Times said that Morocco ranks the second most attractive country to host direct foreign investments in the African continent, after South Africa. The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Salaheddine Mezouar, has indicated that this international meeting will be an open event during which “Morocco is going to target the various countries” with the aim of assuring wider participation.
