More than 250 business incubators, accelerators, program managers, experts from innovation companies and government innovation agencies, from over 40 countries are looking forward to innovative collaborations at the ongoing World Incubation Summit 2019 in Doha.
The event is being held under the patronage of HE the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa al-Thani.
“The hosting of this global event by the State of Qatar is a strong testimony to the distinguished global position that the country has gained in business incubation and acceleration. Different businesses from all over the world have come together to share innovation-related experiences in the areas of entrepreneurship, incubation and business acceleration,” said Qatar Development Bank CEO Abdulaziz Nasser al-Khalifa, speaking on the occasion of the summit.
“I would like to thank Qatar Development Bank for their instrumental support in bringing this event to Qatar. My personal goal is always to build bridges and bring the world together, which is what thrills me about the outcome of the Summit today,” said Ali Amin, CEO and co-founder, UBI Global.
The summit includes workshops, discussions and innovative activities designed to enhance knowledge in building innovative ecosystems across a local and global platform, through individuals who have excelled in their respective fields.
The event is also set to announce the top-ranked incubation programmes as identified and assessed by UBI Global’s World Benchmark Study 2019-2020. These rankings select, assess, and accept programmes that come from more than 70 countries in six geographic regions.
UBI Global was founded in Stockholm, Sweden in 2013. Their goal is to aid business incubators and accelerators to improve their programs, become more attractive to startups, and increase their overall efficiency — and ultimately, their ability to attract investment.
Qatar Development Bank offers financial and advisory services to develop and empower Qatari entrepreneurs and innovators to contribute to the diversification of the Qatari economy, through successful small and medium enterprises that can compete in global markets.
