Thakaa Center for Internet of Things and Cyber Security was established to achieve one of the objectives of the Kingdom’s 2030 economic vision. The mission of the center is to enable startups and small and medium enterprises to operate and use innovations based on the Internet of Things and Cyber Security technologies.

No, we specialized in raising competencies and talents in data science, artificial intelligence, and technology in general, but we can coordinate with our partners incubators and accelerators in some cases to provide management consulting.

There is no fee for this, but the center's management will internally evaluate the priorities for usage requests in order of importance.

The center serves the kingdom as a whole, but the majority of our activities are available online on our website. While most of the physical events are held at the center’s headquarters in Al Khobar, and some are organized in other cities to spread the benefits.

Yes, all the services are for everyone. However, to achieve the center's goals in supporting entrepreneurs and developing enterprises, highest priority is given to the targeted group in some specialized programs.
