Innovative Startups and SMEs Fund Invests USD 150,000 in NEXT Renewable Energy Company

Nov 07 2021


Amman, October 2021: The Innovative Startups and SMEs Fund (ISSF) – the largest investment fund of its kind in Jordan – has completed a direct investment of USD 150,000 in NEXT Renewable Energy Company; a Jordan-based provider of specialized solar thermal (ST) and photovoltaic (PV) solutions. NEXT extends solar-dependent designs, fuel-saving solutions, desalination systems and heavy fuel oil (HFO) tank heating for both commercial and industrial clients across the hotel, hospital, textile and food industries.   

The investment aligns with the Innovative Future Initiative, which the ISSF launched to support startups and SMEs affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in Jordan. Organized in coordination with the World Bank, the initiative has allocated USD 7.5 million to empower these companies to overcome the challenges imposed by the global health crisis.

“Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been placing added focus on direct investments so as to enable startups and SMEs to not only endure, but also prosper. Through this investment, the ISSF is helping NEXT to recover and reach its full technical and operational potentials, consequently contributing to the revival of the local entrepreneurial ecosystem and positively impacting the national economy as a whole,” commented ISSF CEO, Laith Al Qasem.
