In 1995, Zain Jordan revolutionized telecommunications in Jordan by introducing GSM mobile services into the country. Zain quickly became the foremost telecom company in Jordan, a position that it kept to this day through a far sighted policy of investment in adopting cutting edge technology to provide state-of-the-art services to customers.
Zain Jordan pioneered in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), by launching and supporting various national initiatives that go beyond developing the telecom sector. Zain is considered the main supporter for several sectors including Education, Youth, Health, Sports, Environment, social innovation and philanthropy.
Zain is also considered to be one of the Jordanian economy’s pillars as it embraces around one thousand employees and provides thousands of indirect job opportunities. It is considered the operator of choice for millions of Jordanian customers.
Aiming at supporting the entrepreneurship realm in Jordan, Zain inaugurated the Zain Innovation Campus (ZINC), in November 2014. It is the first of its kind across the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, where Zain provides Jordanian entrepreneurs and startups with all the requirements to develop and to transform their creative and innovative ideas into productive projects that shall be marketed locally, regionally and globally. Located at King Hussein Business Park, ZINC is equipped with the latest technology and facilities and services, in addition to providing consulting and guidance, and the opportunity to access a network of numerous strategic partners; representing the world’s leading technology corporates, businesses, startups, and companies interested in embracing creative ideas from various sectors. ZINC has also expanded to include several branches across the kingdom.
It is worth mentioning that Zain Group acquired Zain Jordan in January 2003, in what was considered the largest single acquisition in the Middle East region, and the largest private sector investment in Jordan.
