​We have partnered with Elite UK and Monsha’at to provide small and medium enterprises with skills and tools to grow as a business and succeed in our ever-changing economy.

SMEs provide job opportunities for the Saudi people and foster economic empowerment for youth and women. They contribute to the growth and diversity of the economy. Also, they are critical to reduce poverty and contribute to rural and regional development. SMEs can significantly increase their contribution to exports (faster than large corporations).  Furthermore, they allow to explore new areas of innovation and graduate new champions and they enable national entrepreneur by building strengthened supply chain and increased competitiveness.

ELITE is a unique platform designed to help the UK's most exciting and ambitious private companies prepare and structure for their next stage of growth. It facilitates structured engagement between the UK's most exciting private growth companies, entrepreneurs and business leaders as well as the corporate advisory and investor community.

ELITE is a three-part service of education, business support, mentoring and access delivered in collaboration with Imperial College Business School.
