QDB’s sponsorship for the nation’s biggest digital event is in line with its ambition to empower Qatari entrepreneurs and innovators to spearhead the development of the local smart technology industry.
QDB CEO Abdulaziz bin Nasser Al Khalifa said: “In the days to come, our national economic success will lie in our ability to embrace the fast pace of development in the world of technology, strengthen connectivity with one another and the markets around us and immerse ourselves in the digital age.”
He added: “QDB has always supported events and trade fairs that help local SMEs achieve success. By encouraging diversification of national income sources, we empower the private sector to create employment opportunities for young entrepreneurs.”
Qatar Business Incubation Center
Qatar Business Incubation Center (QBIC), a mixed-use entrepreneur development center founded by QDB, will also sponsor the conference. To this end, three QBIC mentors designated by the center will assist in the development programs scheduled to be held for young computer programmers during the QITCOM conference and serve as panelists during the competitions.
QBIC CEO Aysha Al Mudahka said: “We are confident that QITCOM will help SMEs forge strong partnerships that will help us all develop and promote `Brand Qatar’ in the field of digital technology across local and global markets in the days to come.”
