Qotuf AlRiyadah is the first Saudi private sector-led , not for profit entrepreneurship foundation.

Experienced Saudi entrepreneurs established Qotuf to support and fulfill the needs of aspiring Saudi entrepreneurs through the launch of initiatives, with private and public sectors in affiliation with organisations in over 165 countries.

Qotuf aims to fill the missing gaps and not to duplicate existing efforts. As such, Qotuf only develops highly specialized initiatives focused on three key areas 1. Economic stability and diversity, 2. Youth engagement via innovation, and 3. High quality job creation

Qotuf programs have achieved unparalleled results locally and globally as the strategic direction is more towards diversification and proper engagement of equity funding, mentoring, and growth development to drive the entrepreneurial ecosystem to graduate companies that create high quality of jobs and global existence.
