The development of a new innovation hub based in the Middle East is currently underway with the help of Impulse Partners!
Sharing and challenging ideas with those around us is one of the best ways to innovate, learn, and progress. This is the reason that innovation hubs around the world have been producing some of the most disruptive solutions in recent years.
An excellent example is Station F in Paris. Station F is the largest startup campus in the world, housing more than 1,000 startups as well as numerous acceleration programs and investors. Along with Station F, Impulse Partners pilots an innovation catalyst in partnership with Paris Ouest La Défense. Called “Le Catalyseur”, this hub aims to improve the lives of residents of the western Paris periphery through experimentation and application of innovative solutions.
Saudi Aramco, a world leader in the energy sector, is conscious of the importance of innovation and disruption in the future of energy. In order to further the development of clean energy in the Kingdom and abroad, Saudi Aramco is launching the SPARK Digital Center.
The Digital Center will bring together startups, corporates, investors, institutions, and many others to foster creativity and explore sustainable transformation in the energy sector.
Impulse Partners has vast experience in startup acceleration as well as piloting programs within innovation hubs such as Station F and the Catalyseur, therefore, Saudi Aramco has appointed a consortium led by Impulse Partners, in collaboration with Al Gihaz and Accenture to design and operate its new corporate/startup hub.
A digital community will be created in 2023, with the official inauguration of the building set to take place in 2025. This space will bring together all the relevant players and help them build their entrepreneurial community before the official opening of the building. During the digital phase of the project the founding partners will be selected and supported. Events and meetings throughout the year will promote the development of the ecosystem which will be mature by the time the physical space is ready.
