MTDS helps Intel to Execute its Entrepreneurship Promotion Program in Morocco
Intel Corporation, drawing on its long tradition as global leader in innovation, recently launched a program to promote entrepreneurship in Morocco. In late September 2012, with implementation support from MTDS and in collaboration with Al Akhawayn University, Intel organized a 2 day workshop for a dozen university professors responsible for creating entrepreneurship development courses in their respective institutions, Mohammed V Souissi of Rabat and University Abdelmalek Essaâdi of Tanger-Tétouan. The training program is set to expand to include other institutions of higher education in the coming year. Intel also plans to offer its support for business plan competitions in Morocco to complement its existing global program, the Intel Global Challenge and the regional, Maghreb Start-up Initiative. Since 2009, MTDS has been contracted by Intel Corporation to support implementation of many of its corporate social responsibility programs in Morocco. MTDS is the executing partner of many international and national aid organizations for programs that make innovative use of Information Communication Technologies (ICT) for economic and social development.
