SABIC an example of success of Saudi investments in innovation

A few years ago, innovations and inventions were not popular in Saudi Arabia as they are today. Nowadays, The King Abdulaziz and His Companions' Foundation for Giftedness and Creativity (MAWHIBA), as well as Badir Program for Technology Incubators (Badir), are considered innovation-friendly-places. Badir is a Technology Incubator Program launched by King Abdul Aziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) in 2007. It is a national program that aims at accelerating the growth of emerging technology-based businesses in Saudi Arabia. Similarly, SABIC development initiative "Home of Innovation" launched in Riyadh has been a reflection of Saudi Vision 2030, which is based on many pillars, including diversification of Saudi economy and the launching of investments, creation and innovation opportunities.
