Premium office space provider Servcorp Qatar has recently launched a brand new co-working space in Doha.
The launch ceremony was held in the presence Australian ambassador Dr Axel Wabenhorst, Qatar Business Incubation Centre CEO Aysha al-Mudahka and QBIC head of Incubation for Tourism Alain Valiquette.
Nearly 1.2mn people worldwide are working in shared spaces, Servcorp said in a statement yesterday. According to the latest Global Coworking Survey, the number of co-working spaces worldwide is approaching 14,000 and is growing at a rapid rate, almost doubling every year.
Qatar, with its thriving start-up and entrepreneurship ecosystem, is no exception to this trend, the statement said.
“Qatar is a key target market for Servcorp. We see a growing demand for more flexible and cost-effective solutions from a new profile of customers and businesses operating in Qatar,” said Servcorp senior manager Fabienne Hajjar.
“It is a proven fact that people thrive in co-working spaces in terms of networking, creativity and efficiency. Servcorp actually offers much more than a co-working space. We offer a community of like-minded people sharing the same values and the same willingness to collaborate, learn, and exchange. The new Servcorp co-working space is open for business and welcomes visitors to check-out our location,” Hajjar added.
Located on the 14th floor of Commercial Bank Plaza in West Bay, the new Servcorp co-working space offers impressive views at 148m high, over the sea, Al Corniche, and is immediately available to local and international companies, start-ups, and independent professionals looking for innovative working solutions.
Providing the world’s finest workspace solutions and moving away from traditional spaces, the fully-equipped and furnished co-working space offers a ready-made solution for companies looking to establish a branch office, entrepreneurs needing a flexible office space or local businesses currently cutting their operational budgets, and looking for more flexible solutions to host their teams, meetings, and business.
Al-Mudahka said: “An inspiring, collaborative, and modern working environment is crucial to spark new ideas and to boost business opportunities. QBIC is empowering local entrepreneurs to build and grow their companies.
“So far, we incubated more than 50 companies and are hosting more than 300 ‘LeanStartup’ graduates who will be soon looking for a strategic location to operate, with high degree of flexibility and cost-efficiency. Servcorp is the ideal solution for ambitious entrepreneurs in Qatar.”
Depending on the package, Servcorp co-working space offers clients access to hot desks or dedicated desks, boardroom and meeting rooms, secretarial support, in addition to a wide range of other benefits.
It also allows members to collaborate and network locally, and with Servcorp operating in 23 countries, in over 160 locations, members can connect with 40,000 clients globally, one of the world’s largest business communities.
In line with Qatar’s National Vision 2030 in building a self-sustainable society and diversifying its economy, Servcorp aims to serve this vision by paving the way for a flourishing ‘gig-economy’ in Qatar. More information is available on
