  • Submit Entrepreneur (Student) Idea by completing the application.
  • Specialized committee from the center will review your idea and assist you in qualifying the idea to be posted on the PMU website for voting (not applicable for Non-PMU student/employee applicants).
  • Once the Dean of Student Affairs approves it, the idea will be posted online and open for voting.
  • At the close of the time designated for voting, winners will be contacted to start the next phase by receiving a congratulation sealed “WOW” letter from Prince Turki Bin Mohammad Bin Fahd Center for Creativity & Entrepreneurship.
  • If you are among the winners, you will need to submit a business plan canvas of your idea so that a team of relevant experts can review it to determine feasibility for further support (the center will provide the needed support to accomplish this task).

Regardless of the results here, the owner of the idea may apply for patent request.
