Founders & Partners
Qatar Development Bank
QDB has the mission of accelerating the development of the Qatari private sector in line with the diversification needs of Qatar. The bank’s vision is to be the primary enabler of Qatar’s private sector and economic diversification through strategies to shift the economic focus away from the hydrocarbon industry by stimulating a robust and diversified private sector. QBIC plays an important role in helping fulfil these aims for a thriving and sustainable Qatari economy.
Nama supports QBIC as a leader in promoting SMEs and entrepreneurial activity in Qatar towards these goals.
With this, QBIC is set to become part of Microsoft’s BizSpark scheme, which provides free software and support for start-ups, as well as access to a global online community. Entrepreneurs will also benefit from online and offline training guidance from Microsoft DirectX specialists, including the App Academy, Ask the Expert sessions, and Microsoft’s Virtual Academy.
The partnership will allow up a number of QBIC incubatees to participate in selected QFBA courses free of charge. In addition, customized courses can be catered to the needs of QBIC incubatees for special rates.
