Jordan's major challenge is to combat the increasing unemployment and underemployment particularly among young people.While the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the capital Amman is already relatively well developed,and diversified, the governorates in more rural areas lack support structures for start-ups and cooperation between different actors. They also lack international networking opportunities
with providers of start-up services. Moreover, there is a lack of matchmaking formats, incubators and accelerator programmes, as well as funding opportunities for founders.

The project aims to strengthen the employment potential through entrepreneurship in Jordan (national level) and selected governorates. Geographical areas of the intervention are the governorates of Aqaba as a first governorate and then in the second stage (see Option) also Karak in the south and Jerash and Mafraq in the North.

The Overall Objective of the project is “to stimulate sustainable and inclusive employment through entrepreneurship and private sector development.” The Specific Objectives (outcome) of the project (related to EU action document) are: 1) The business environment for private sector growth is improved; 2) Entrepreneurship capacities are strengthened, and opportunities increased; 3) Employment opportunities for Jordanian andrefugee (including Syrian) job seekers are increased.
