Muscat Daily - - PRESS RELEASES -

A del­e­ga­tion rep­re­sent­ing Duqm Re­fin­ery vis­ited re­cently the Na­tional Busi­ness Cen­tre (NBC) at the Knowl­edge Oa­sis Mus­cat (KOM) to get ac­quainted with the ser­vices and in­cen­tives of­fered by NBC.

Of­fi­cials at NBC briefed the visi­tors on the vi­sion of the cen­tre which is recog­nised as a mile­stone project for the en­trepreneurs in Oman that was launched by the Pub­lic Es­tab­lish­ment for In­dus­trial Es­tates (PEIE) in 2013 to of­fer promis­ing Omani en­trepreneurs a plat­form to de­velop their busi­ness ideas and ad­vance them into grow­ing ven­tures.

The cen­tre of­fers an apt plat­form for the Omani en­trepreneurs by pro­vid­ing busi­ness de­vel­op­ment sup­port and guid­ance, train­ing and men­tor­ing, ac- cess to mar­kets and in­dus­try ex­perts and state-of-the-art and fully equipped of­fice spa­ces, meet­ing rooms and presentation fa­cil­i­ties.

NBC of­fi­cials ex­plained that the ser­vices of NBC are di­vided into three phases, com­pris­ing pre-in­cu­ba­tion, dur­ing in­cu­ba­tion and the ac­cel­er­a­tion phase. The cen­tre seeks to fa­cil­i­tate and sup­port the growth of in­vestable ideas into suc­cess­ful busi­nesses; build en­tre­pre­neur­ial skills through ded­i­cated and fo­cused train­ing, coach­ing and men­tor­ing; and pro­vide busi­ness sup­port fa­cil­i­ties from of­fice spa­ces, ad­min­is­tra­tive sup­port, fi­nan­cial sup­port and con­sul­tancy ser­vices that are cru­cial in en­sur­ing the suc­cess and sur­vival of new ven­tures.

The del­e­gates were also briefed on the ex­pe­ri­ence of two in­cu­bated com­pa­nies at NBC, which are Al Salama Fire En­gi­neer­ing Con­sul­tancy and Astron­omy Pi­o­neer Projects.

Al Salama Fire En­gi­neer­ing Con­sul­tancy is one of the con­sul­tan­cies reg­is­tered and ap­proved by the civil de­fence and is spe­cialised in de­sign­ing build­ings to meet the re­quire­ments of Fire Haz­ard Pre­ven­tion De­part­ment at the Direc­torate Gen­eral of Civil De­fence along with NFPA codes, which are used for life safety and pro­tec­tion of build­ings from fire loss.

Astron­omy Pi­o­neer Projects is one of the com­pa­nies seek­ing to en­cour­age sci­en­tific cu­rios­ity to the so­ci­ety in astron­omy, space and ap­plied sciences by pro­vid­ing ed­u­ca­tional sci­en­tific tools and op­ti­cal equip­ment.
