Nofal pointed out that the center organizes a number of programs, training courses and specialized workshops for entrepreneurs, in addition to a number of programs for university students, which aim to introduce them to the market with innovative projects, and not to wait for jobs.

One of the examples of success, which passed on the sail, where the Center received the idea of ​​a young man, related to the creation of a robot capable of entering the sea water to remove waste, and the idea was a great success prompted the Sharjah Environment Company (Bee'ah) to cooperate with the owner of the idea later.
