Qatar University (QU) has launched the Qatar chapter of the International Council for Small Business, which is devoted to the interests and advancement of small businesses globally.
The Qatar Chapter was launched with a focus on communicating with international collaborators of entrepreneurship and offering training and conferences to bring entrepreneurs and stakeholders together, QU said on Monday.
It is considered one of the most important platforms for disseminating new information on small business management and enterprise development.
The ICSB-Qatar branch will serve as a link between the entrepreneurial community in QU and connect Qatar with the international community for small businesses and enterprises. Members of the Business Advisory Council at QU include representatives from QU, Ministry of Commerce & Industry, Qatar Development Bank, National Tourism Council Qatar, Qatar Chamber of Commerce & Industry and the private sector.
The ICSB-Qatar branch welcomes all faculty members, students and businessmen in Qatar to join, which will enable them to participate in various activities such as executive training programmes and allow them to attend and participate in local and international conferences. ICSB-Qatar will also promote Qatar at the international level as a destination of opportunity, innovation and entrepreneurial activities.
The ICSB-Qatar branch is an important step which supports the new strategy including objectives such as developing entrepreneurship in various academic disciplines through operational programs.
QU is working to support innovation activities by promoting applied research and commercialisation of research that leads to new products and services for the economy.
