PNB will select 10 high-impact tech entrepreneurs representing PNB countries and link them with US entrepreneurs, experts and investors for a week, in which an intensive training will be provided. This will also give some entrepreneurs the chance to find more resources and financial support.

One of PNB’s success stories is “Ibn Khaldoun Exchange Program” in the Maghreb.
