Following the success of ‘The Enterprise Challenge Qatar’ 2013, Bedaya Centre and Qatar Shell have signed a three-year Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to expand the entrepreneurship programme among the universities and schools in Doha and the Northern Communities.
The ‘Enterprise Challenge Qatar’ is a programme that encourages the spirit of entrepreneurship among young people, by equipping them with practical business skills to develop their business acumen, team work, and strategic thinking.
The programme is made up of two parts comprising the Ethical Business Challenge which tests participants’ ability to balance the economic, environmental and social performance of their company. The Business Simulation element familiarises students with general business concepts from inception through to trading, finance, sales, marketing and production.
Since its establishment in 2012, ‘The Enterprise Challenge Qatar’ programme has rapidly expanded, with a growing number of institutions, businesses, schools, and mentors getting involved. The founding Partners in Qatar, Bedaya and Qatar Shell, are targeting 700 students from nine universities and twelve schools from around Qatar during this year’s edition, following the participation of 430 students last year.
