AMMAN The Jordan Enterprise Development Corporation (JEDCO) has started providing technical mentoring and business coaching to local companies participating in "Accelerate with JEDCO" programme, according to a JEDCO statement.

JEDCO is making that possible through contracting local consultants and mentors to provide guidance and new leadership skills in several areas such as strategic planning, marketing, and financial analysis.

Accelerate with JEDCO, financed by the MENA Transition Fund, is an important step towards supporting, reinforcing and transforming JEDCO from a grant-centred organisation to a leading quality business support service provider for SMEs and startups, JEDCOs CEO Omar Qaryouti said in the statement.

Qaryouti said that more than 50 local companies will benefit from this service starting from diagnostic field visits

He noted that this is an additional service by JEDCO which focuses on helping local companies to grow in the local market and to expand their access to new markets, by providing training, networking and studies of foreign markets.

Other new services will be provided to local companies that have large export readiness to help them increase their exports and enter new markets, he added.

Accelerate with JEDCO is an integrated and comprehensive programme, specialised in expediting the growth process and development of enterprises in a manner that conforms to the Jordanian business environment.
