In 2018, Rowad Riyali partnered with Blossom, Saudi’s first female-focused accelerator, to support local talent. A joint program inducted 10 startups into an intensive four-week accelerator to equip founders with the tools, networks and resources to succeed.
Rowad Riyali also participated at the 2018 Business Youth Exhibition, where visitors were asked to try an on-the-spot lesson to deliver a successful elevator pitch.
Riyali’s successes in 2018 saw it win the 2018 IBX CSR and 2018 Learning Technologies Award.
In 2019, Riyali will pursue ambitious expansion to accommodate more stakeholders and engage new audiences. Its growth plans are aligned with entrepreneurial opportunities sparked by the National Transformation Plans 2020 and 2023, and Saudi Vision 2030.
