Qatar is launching an ambitious development platform 'Mulhemeen', which is aimed at inculcating entrepreneurship, especially in the small and medium enterprises (SME) segment, in the country.
The novel initiative, which comes from Nama (formerly Social Development Center), will be launched on October 31 at the Intercontinental Hotel.
It is a platform for the successful entrepreneurs to share their stories and for promising ventures to network with investors and pitch for their business ideas to secure a deal, said Radi Ajlan al-Anzi, communication and media office manager, Nama, in the presence of Saoud al-Mohannadi entrepreneurship manager.
The platform is also aimed at supporting the National Development Strategy 2018-2022 with a range of programmes that contribute to strengthening the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Qatar and the promotion of a culture of innovation and a spirit of competition among entrepreneurs, especially Qataris.
There will be also be opportunities for entrepreneurs to secure investment deals and showcase their projects to a select group of investors interested in small and micro businesses.
The Nama Center seeks to empower young people with new and innovative programmes and ideas that matches its mission and objectives connected with those of Qatar Social Work Foundation aimed at enabling youth and developing their personal capacities for a brighter future of the country.
The move by Nama comes in the backdrop of Qatar striving to make its youth an integral part of the implementation of 2030 developmental plan, by providing them with a more responsible role to play.
Qatar's National Vision 2030 has emphasised the importance of empowering young people as a key focus.
The country's third national human development report focused on understanding the context, challenges and opportunities facing Qatari youth and overcoming obstacles to be able to contribute to Qatar's knowledge economy, which requires addressing the problems, issues, aspirations and challenges facing young people.
