Bedaya’s drive to encourage Qataris to do biz from home

September 29, 2020

Bedaya Center for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (Bedaya Center), a joint initiative by Qatar Development Bank (QDB) and Silatech, has launched a new initiative to encourage Qatari entrepreneurs to obtain a home licence that will allow them to conduct commercial activities from their homes. The initiative has been launched in collaboration with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI).
The home licence is a drive for the expansion and development of entrepreneurs’ projects, which eventually contribute to the country’s economic development and diversification process.
Under this initiative, Bedaya Center will start receiving requests from those wishing to obtain a home licence to engage in commercial activities by filling out a dedicated application that should be submitted with all the required documents and submitting them to the employee who has been assigned by the ministry at Bedaya Center to facilitate the registration process and encourage entrepreneurs to start their home business. The needed documents for applying are shown on the MoCI website.
Moreover, Bedaya Center has provided dedicated staff to answer all inquiries of Qatari entrepreneurs wishing to obtain a home licence, guide them about their submitted applications to complete the registration process, and follow up their requests in the ministry until the moment of issuing the licences.
The initiative will save time and effort for entrepreneurs and center employees to obtain home licences, in addition to granting them a free subscription for a month in the “Dukan“ Bedaya, allowing them to display their products (food and beverages are excluded), and the ability to participate in the center’s activities and promote their businesses.
Speaking about the initiative, Abdulla Faleh al Saeed, Board Member and Acting General Manager of Bedaya Center said, “This initiative comes in cooperation with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry to support the efforts made by the center to motivate entrepreneurs to start their home projects within the legal procedures. Our joining hands with the ministry will definitely help our upcoming entrepreneurs to spread and expand the appearance of their products and services not only on social media platforms, but in all retail stores under the license that they will obtain, which gives them moral and material support at the same time”.
“This initiative also aims to urge entrepreneurs to innovate, develop and support their capabilities and skills, to invest in their own projects, which come within the framework of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry and Bedaya Center to create an investment environment and stimulate opportunities for Qataris to encourage and motivate them towards production and self-employment,” he added.
