Doha, August 18, 2014
Bedaya Centre has signed a three-year memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Qatar Shell, to expand the enterprise challenge Qatar (ECQ) programme among universities and schools in Qatar.
ECQ is a unique annual competition that aims to teach university and school students all over Qatar about setting up and running a venture, using a business simulation game, a statement said.
The competition starts in September and continues until November for universities and till December for schools. Semi-finals will take place a month before the finals for each group. Winners of the universities finals will be announced during the ‘Global Entrepreneurship Week’, from November 17 to 23, followed by the schools finals in December which will declare the schools winning team, it said.
The ECQ competition involves a series of intensive mentoring sessions and workshops provided by around 100 volunteer mentors, many of whom are Qataris trained by Bedaya and Qatar Shell.
The challenge attracts experienced mentors who volunteer from a range of professional backgrounds – either business managers or executives from professional services firms, leading banks or law firms who will support teams of three to five students across six one-hour mentoring sessions, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
