Where Your Ideas become YOUR Business, Oasis500

Do you have an idea that you believe in and want to make it your own business? Do you want to get funding and realize a dream? Do you want your business to regain focus? Do you want an unbelievable networking event?

I just attended wave 10 of Oasis500 Bootcamp "training" and I assure you it will blow your mind away...

I can't stress this enough, Oasis500 Bootcamp is a MUST for anyone who is thinking of starting an online business, anything with digital content or telecommunication...

Oasis 500

It's open for everyone, not only Jordanians, the truth is I have been to sooo many workshop in the Arab World... UAE, Jordan and Lebanon... and this is by far one of the most interesting and useful training workshops out there... I guarantee you will actually learn something that can be applied to your business or Idea... In most cases it will give you a whole new perspective and there are reasons for that; you will get immense practical knowledge from speakers with actual experience in starting up their own companies like Usama Fayyad...

if you have no idea what financials are, you are in for some "PRACTICAL" informative sessions with live practice on examples and account statements, a guided tour into the world of finance with a very helpful step by step coach, that's Salwa Katkhuda, another impressive speaker is Omar Sherif on Creativity, Marketing and Branding, you will get the chance to experience training with a fully functional training that costs you nothing if you are committed... You will be introduced to amazing entrepreneurs who speak with passion about their real life experience and how they made it out there in the real world... oh I almost forgot the very important part on how to write a professional executive summary and company profile with Serene Shalan. I happened to forget her name at the time of writing this post and was reminded by fellow entrepreneurs "how can you forget"!

I cannot stress enough the importance of the value proposition skeleton, how to make a successful elevator pitch and an investor's pitch... The parts on how technology companies experience "The Chasm" was an eye opener, the beachhead strategy and bowling alley approach changed the way I see business and gives a whole new perspective and the finale of "Reasons why startups fail" is amazing and will leave you with some very serious thought and contemplation.

The whole experience is priceless because you are NOT fed theories like most other "entrepreneurial bull" workshops... Except for the Business Model part, which I found to be very rigid and it does resemble the theoretical time wasters, although the trainer has excellent presentation & communication skills but the rigid material kind of gets you... all in all... you are presented with a unique learning experience, with something that is practical... and its actually even fun... tough but fun... I guarantee that you love it but you have to go there with the intention of wanting to learn...

"Do you know what Oasis500 is?..... Let me start by telling you what Oasis500 is not.... Oasis500 is NOT an American conspiracy, in fact we are still trying to get funded by the Americans!" Usama Fayyad...

I'm not going to ruin the Bootcamp for you but "3antrah eben Shaddad" has a thing or two to teach you about running your business :) you are in for 6 days that are going to leave a permanent mark on you.. your business... your idea...

You can apply on their website:


Enjoy a whole new perspective! and let me know how it was...

hi mohammad,
You didn't mention that you are a great writer (plus a great entrepreneur sure).
however, I just wanna say that it was an amazing time we spend it together.
By the way the trainer who talked about Executive summary was " Seren " but I don't remember her family name, which means that, this happens to young people also these days :).

Every time I read something about Oasis500 I feel Jealous!
I have so many ideas that I really feel like implementing them all, but I really want to join the training, and the boot camps that they offer.
Can I apply without specifying an idea??
Every body is saying what a great experience it is to join Oasis500 :(

M Kilany said...

Thanks Odai... I think it would be great if we start a facebook page for the bootcamp graduates to interact with each other... and exchange experiences...

M Kilany said...

Hii... One of the lessons we have been continuously given in Oasis500 bootcamp is the importance of focus... Try to focus your efforts on ONE of those ideas to start with for the application, as you move in the training from one session to the next you might develop your idea or change to one of your other ideas... the learning process is unbelievable... One thing I regret is not going to Oasis earlier...
