About the event

Under the Patronage of H.E. Dr. Mohammed Bin Saleh Al Sada, Minister of Energy & Industry – Qatar

Entrepreneurship is generally recognized as a vital element in economic development and an engine for private sector growth and diversity. It plays a major role in contributing to capital formation, creating employment opportunities, reducing the concentration of economic powers, inducing forward and forward linkages in an economy, creating and distributing wealth, and generally promoting economic growth. And as Qatar and the rest of the Gulf move towards more private sector oriented economies, there is an urgent need to encourage and support entrepreneurship, and to foster a generation of young entrepreneurs who have the knowledge and business culture to take advantage of the wealth of opportunities in the future.

In light of that, Qatar University in cooperation with Interactive Business Network are organizing “Entrepreneurship in Economic Development Forum” to be held in Doha, State of Qatar on 24-25 February 2014.

Entrepreneurship in Economic Development Forum will be an effective and first of its kind platform in the region for defining the issues, assessing the prevailing entrepreneurial culture in Qatar and the wider Gulf, discussing the importance of fostering and promoting entrepreneurship, and proposing a specific plan of action to make Qatar University, as well as other Gulf universities and educational institutions incubators of young entrepreneurs of the future by devising and implementing degree programs that aim specifically at developing the right skills in the arts of business, decision making and risk management.

The forum is expected to attract wide interest and participation on the part of officials and policy makers, major public/private institutions involved in education and youth development, business leaders, banks and specialized financial institutions, economists and experts in various fields and the academic community in Qatar, the rest of the Gulf countries and internationally.
