Season II Selection Panel


Concluding its premiere season of Business Innovation Growth (BIG), an event was held at BIG that served as both a closing ceremony in celebration of all participating startup businesses in the first season (season I) of BIG, and  welcoming Season II. The event was attended by the CEO and senior management members of Orange Jordan, CEO of Roya TV Fares Sayegh, various media and press representatives, and the members of the startups themselves.

Also at the ceremony, Orange Jordan signed a partnership agreement with Play 3arabi, a social mobile games publisher focused on the Middle East & North Africa region, whereby Orange Jordan will sponsor its Arab Race Game. Play 3arabi was one startup among an impressive list of other startups in BIG Season One, including Masmoo3, Trevx, DIGAT, and Yaqot.

Commenting on the occasion, Orange Jordan CEO Jérôme Hénique said, “We at Orange Jordan could not be more pleased with the results of the debut season of our new BIG program. It was an honor to work with all of the startups involved, and I am proud of our strategic partnership with Play 3arabi. We look forward to commencing round two of BIG with our carefully selected participants that were chosen based on a thorough set of criteria, and we anxiously anticipate meeting more young entrepreneurs that will play vital roles in shaping Jordan’s future.”
