UKH Youth Empowerment Event

February 14, 2022

The University of Kurdistan Hewlêr (UKH) was established not only to revolutionise education and boost its quality, but also to address the needs of the society such as, but limited to; economic, sustainability, industrial, social, political developments. While a key element of UKH’s mission is disseminating and applying knowledge to further the industrial, economic, cultural and social development of Kurdistan and the region, we believe that UKH students and alumni are now a great source of inspiration and are a unique and strong workforce that is playing a major role in the development of the economy of the region.

On February 28, 2022, we are organising the first UKH Youth Empowerment event in which UKH current students and alumni who have successfully launched their business get together in an exhibition on UKH campus.

The aim of this event is to enhance the participating businesses and improve their networking experience. Additionally, the event will create invaluable opportunities for the students and guests to sharpen their business acumen and hear from distinguished UKH Entrepreneurs as they share their business insights, life lessons, as well as the inspirations they received during their enrollment at UKH.

26 student-owned and 17 alumni-owned businesses have registered to participate and showcase their products and services in the UKH Youth Empowerment event.

The event is organised in partnership between UKH and the Rwanga Foundation and sponsored by Four Bridges Company in Erbil. Rudaw Media Network is the exclusive media sponsor of this event.

The event starts at 10:00 AM and continues until 5:00 PM. UKH Career Development Centre (CDC), Creativity & Entrepreneurship Centre and Public Relations, Media and Communications Department are organising this event.
