Nama Centre has said it is exhibiting seven projects, which have benefited from its incubator services, in the market being held on the sidelines of the ongoing Qatar ExxonMobil Open 2018.
The projects represent ventures of young Qataris into small and micro enterprises and are being promoted at the Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex, Al Dafna, from 4.30pm to 10pm until January 6, Nama Centre has said in a press statement.
Pointing out the significance of the event, Nama Centre acting executive manager Maryam bint Abdullatif al-Mannai said: “Through its outstanding participation in this market, Nama Centre seeks to support and promote sustainable development efforts by endorsing small and micro enterprises, encouraging the community to move forward in entrepreneurship, and paving the way for creative entrepreneurs to successfully launch their businesses and achieve their desired goals.
“We thank the Qatar Tennis Federation for their continued support of the centre’s strategic directions, and for providing us with free spaces for the promotion of these projects. We also call upon all members and entities of our society to support such projects, so that we can all contribute towards the goals of Qatar National Vision 2030.”
Through its participation in such events, Nama Centre “seeks to support projects that benefit from its entrepreneurial services and enable owners to carry out successful business activities by making the best use of the services, as well as monitor strengths and weaknesses in order to improve these projects”, the statement noted. It also aims to improve performance and quality, and enhance local production in Qatar through direct interaction with the public. Such activities contribute towards the larger goal of developing human capital, thereby promoting the development, prosperity and sustainability of the Qatari economy, according to the centre.
A young entrepreneur - whose participation in the market was related to perfumes, creams and natural mixtures - expressed gratitude to Nama Centre for incubating her project. “Nama Centre has been extremely supportive and encouraging of my project. Whenever an event is held in Doha, Nama Centre invites me to participate and also follows up to provide me with the support I need to help improve my business,” she said. Testimony to Nama Centre’s “commitment towards helping the incubator initiative” are the varied products offered by the projects at the market, including food, souvenirs, artwork, photography, perfumes and incense, among others.
The centre stressed that it “has made it a priority to participate in several events this year”, including the upcoming Qatar Total Open 2018, the women’s tennis tournament. At this event, Nama Centre aims to display and promote the products of a number of innovative incubator projects, shed more light on the reality of entrepreneurship in Qatar and introduce its entrepreneurial services to the broadest community possible.
Nama is a Qatar Foundation for Social Work-affiliated centre.
