WELCOME TO THE III
Who we are
Do you need help with something you invented? Do you have an idea and now you’re not sure about what to do next? If so, you’ve come to the right place.
Let us assist you.
Welcome to the Q1 2020 issue of MEA Markets Magazine. As always, we are dedicated to providing our readers with all of the latest news and features from across the Middle East and Africa.
It’s an unprecedented time to put it mildly, but the world carries on. True, it seems at a more cautious pace as we try and make the typical everyday more normal. The world of business, especially, is at the crossroads.
It’s a time of intense change and adjustment. Industries that have remained traditional for a long time are now being forced to adapt to more modern sensibilities and methods of working. Time will tell whether these changes stick or not, or whether once this is all over, the global community will slide back collectively into the old … it’s going to be interesting whatever happens.
But, for now, MEA Markets will continue to place in the spotlight the work of those businesses that are going above and beyond; businesses that are setting the pace, adapting, and driving change.
Today, innovation and creativity are needed, with business leaders up and down the region finding new ways to thrive in this otherwise uncertain world we now find ourselves. Take, for instance Eloise R Photography on our front cover. We spoke to owner Eloise Robbertze in detail about her work as an artist as well as her inspirations … because, right now, we could all do with and appreciate something precious, rare and beautiful.
I hope you all stay safe and have a wonderful quarter ahead.
Go here to read more about the Institute of Inventors and Innovators Award:
Essentially PITTP™ is a confidential service (we all work with signed NDAs) for members only that gives an inventor the chance to interrogate, pitch and present a business concept or product to a Panel of professionals and subject specialists. It provides a real chance to move your invention idea or project forward in the right direction.
The III Inventors Club
The III Inventors Club meets the first three Wednesdays of the month from 17h30-18h30 SAST via Zoom. Each week has a different theme and interesting and useful talks and discussions, specifically arranged for Inventors, take place. Come and listen to both local and international speakers share their knowledge and wisdom. The Inventors Club takes a break annually in December.
In 2022 Eureka!NEWS will give way for our Blog and the Members only WhatsAPP group will keep you informed. There is a comprehensive FAQ section, NEWS to keep you updated on events and competitions (look out for the drop downs) and SITE SEEING introduces you to useful websites of note.
Keep checking, new info and more services are added regularly.
