Oman Technology Fund (OTF) has supported the launch of two new technology platforms under its OR1mn investment programme for technology startups in Oman.
The two new platforms include Smart Educational Platform @elearningcss for university e-learning and Bima Platform (@bima_oman) for the insurance sector.
‘The projects come as part of OTF’s 1 million initiative which seeks to overcome challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic,’ said OTF in a tweet.
OTF has unveiled a wide participation from Omani youth contributing sustainable solutions for serving the community in the current conditions.
OTF has also invested in multiple electronic platforms that provide solutions for telework, e-bidding, e-commerce of fruits, vegetables and livestock.
The aim of the initiative is to provide technical solutions to help citizens and residents to abide by social distancing, which is the mainstay of Oman’s efforts to check the spread of COVID-19.
