Hi, I’m Aysha, the CEO of QBIC. I was born and bred in Qatar, and educated between Doha and Pennsylvania. (A good education never stops.) My professional background lies in finance and business, working locally with the QFC and QFBA. What I love is being able to talk to people about their passions and to promote innovative business thinking – which, happily, is what my work now at QBIC is all about.

I also work further to expand local entrepreneurial skills as a board member for the training and education organisation INJAZ, a founding member of the Roudha Centre for women’s entrepreneurship and innovation, and a member of the Global Shapers Community, a World Economic Forum initiative. Every so often I find time for some diving, too: I’m a certified PADI diver and love seeing the wealth of life and action underwater in our beautiful seas.

QBIC is a fantastic asset for Qatar and I’m very proud to be here working with this superb team, busy turning Qatar into Entrepreneurship Central! Last but not least, we like open doors here at QBIC. So get Anne to make you an appointment (so we can talk properly) and come and say hello.
