Qatar Business Incubation Center's (QBIC) specialised incubator, QBIC Tourism, has incubated two new startups that have undergone a 10-week LeanStartup Program and one established SME seeking support to scale-up its operations.
QBIC recently celebrated the conclusion of its seventh LeanStartup Program with the Demo Day event, which offered 15 participating startups the chance to pitch their business ideas. The pitches were evaluated by a panel of judges, investors and key partners, and successful businesses won the opportunity to become incubated and develop their companies further. “In addition to giving us the opportunity to celebrate Qatar's natural and cultural gems, tourism provides an important avenue to diversifying the national economy, and we are delighted that today we have introduced new additions to the country's growing tourism offering,” commented Aysha Al Mudahka, CEO of QBIC. “The companies incubated at Demo Day will help shape the tourism sector in Qatar, and we call on more entrepreneurs to come forward with their ideas to help build an attractive tourism destination reflective of Qatar's rich heritage.”
