MENA Salam Fellowship

Entrepreneurship, Mindfulness and Innovation

The Middle East and North Africa Salam Fellowship

Tunisia, 27 - 31 March 2017

The fellowship is not available to apply for at the moment.

We live in the age of distraction, and to be a successful entrepreneur requires razor sharp focus. Our minds are our most precious resource; they are the source of happiness or depression, creativity or self-destruction, problem-solving or problem-making. It seems strange that we hardly take the time to care for what is our greatest asset. Our attention is distracted by technology, our surroundings and our work. Then there are moments when we’re consumed by overwhelming stresses or challenge of having to do things outside our skill set. Adding mindfulness techniques into the workday can provide an immediate release of the pressure valve of stress, diminish distractions and allow us to do better work.

Over the last decades, innovation and creativity have become critical skills for achieving success. The need for creative problem solving has arisen as more and more management problems require creative insights in order to find suitable impactful solutions as well as providing support through networking and living together. Peace Revolution would like to introduce its 4th MENA Salam Fellowship. This year, the Fellowship will focus on Young Entrepreneurs from the MENA region.
