IJNet Arab launches third mentoring center

International Journalists’ Network’s Arabic channel – IJNet Arab – will launch its third mentoring programme for individuals and organisations with digital startups in the Middle East and North Africa. The programme will equip eight mentees with the business, technical, managerial, digital and mobile media skills and strategies needed to help their existing media startups to thrive. Applicants for the programme must have already launched their startup, that targets Arabic-speaking audiences, in order to qualify and 16 semi-finalists will be selected to compete for the eight places available. At the end of the programme, IJNet will award US$5,000 in seed funding to the most promising of the eight projects.
