What do I need to do to receive the support packages from SABIC?

What is Entema? How is it different from Nusaned™ Initiative?

Entema is the opportunity gate portal, part of the Nusaned™ Initiative. Through Entema, SABIC aims at providing investors a platform to explore investment opportunities and test their viability and attractiveness to receive SABIC support.

What is Nusaned™?

Nusaned™ is SABIC’s first integrated localization program. It is aimed at addressing some of the issues investors face from idea generation to execution of the idea. It has four key pillars:

  • DAEM – provide support packages to enable qualified opportunities
  • Investment Fund – provide financing to qualified opportunities
  • Muahal – workforce development program for qualified opportunities

What type of opportunities / areas are supported in the Nusaned™ Initiative?

On the Entema portal, investors can find a list of potential opportunities that can be explored and evaluated further. These opportunities are typically linked to:

  • Materials and services SABIC procures
  • Downstream industries which can use SABIC products as raw materials. or
  • SABIC patents/technologies/applications which can be commercialized

Additionally, investors can also submit opportunities identified through other sources.

What type of support will be provided by SABIC if I invest in Saudi Arabia?

SABIC will support qualified investor with opportunities by designing a customized package including support such as providing competitive pricing and product offtake, offering shared services and supply chain, workforce capability development, and sharing technical know-how and global practices.

Who are the partners? What is their role in my investments?
