MENA ICT ForumThe MENA ICT Forum 2010 taking place in Amman, Jordan on October 10-11, 2010; which we previously announced here, is building up to be quite the event; but there’s been one little problem for entrepreneurs, and that’s the high attendance price, with tickets costing US$1000 for Int@j members and US$1500 for non-members.

Oasis 500, the new ICT seed capital fund that was launched from Jordan, as an initiative designed to help entrepreneurs turn their ideas into businesses, though they’d lend a hand in getting entrepreneurs to attend the forum.

Oasis 500 will be sponsoring 30 free passes for entrepreneurs, so that they can get to spend two days with regional and global ICT leaders and key decision makers. These free passes are available through a video competition titled “Why should I be invited to attend the MENA ICT Forum?”

Basically entrepreneurs interested in attending the event need to upload a video of themselves telling the world about their business concept and uniqueness (2-3 minutes long), and then they have to share promote and share the video with their family, friends and contacts to get as many views as possible for it. The 30 videos with the highest number of views are the ones that will win the free passes to the MENA ICT Forum.

Final winners are subject to a Committee review to ensure candidates are entrepreneurs or start-ups that would otherwise not be able to attend the MENA ICT Forum 2010.

The competition started on September 5th and ends on September 29th 6 PM Amman, Jordan time
