Create your startup and personal profile and tell us about the problem you are solving.
If your application passes the first stage of validation, we will match you to a group of mentors based not just on your industry, product, market or speciality, but personality. Our group of mentors includes serial entrepreneurs, angels and venture capital specialists and investors.
After successfully receiving mentorship, our technical and financial experts will validate your idea, market and product fit, scalability, investability, marketability and financials. They will work with you to get everything right before it goes to the investors.
Once you received mentorship, and approved by our technical and financial experts, your startup will be made available to investors to make you an offer. OSP provides a single common platform and access to hundreds of angel and venture capital specialists and investors who are focused on helping and developing OIC based entrepreneurs and startups.
The mentorship, validation, funding and continuous education will provide you a solid base to run you startup like a seasoned entrepreneur. We will be around to provide you support whenever you needed!
OSP's aim is to provide new entrepreneurs the skills they need to build a tech startup from the ground up. The trainings start at idea generation and include product development, competitive strategy, finance, digital marketing, customer and marketplace management, technology, human psychology and many more. All programmes are free and accredited by Oxademy Business School, UK.Sign up to OIC Startup Platform now
Research about the role of religion in entrepreneurship and more broadly management, is sparse. In this conceptual article, we complement existing entrepreneurship theory by examining entrepreneurship from an Islamic perspective (EIP). EIP is based on three interconnected pillars: the entrepreneurial, socio-economic/ethical, and religio-spiritual.
We outline how Islam shapes entrepreneurship at the micro-, meso-, and macro-level, indicate how Islam may be considered an entrepreneurial religion in the sense that it enables and encourages entrepreneurial activity, review research streams interlinking Islam with entrepreneurship and management and outline promising research approaches.
OSP has been launched to ensure well-being and economic prospects of young people.
