Financing, Funding & Investing (Qatar Investment)

An introduction to Financing, Funding & Investing (or Qatar Investment)

It is a consensus that Small & Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) and Start Ups are the foundation of national economies in developed countries around the world.

Small & Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) and Start Ups are under-represented (in terms of contributions to the economies) in a number of countries in the Middle East. The policies and strategies to diversify these economies include the encouragement of entrepreneurship.

The Qatar National Vision 2030 emphasizes the importance of Start Ups and Small & Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) and their contributions to the economy and development of the State of Qatar.

In line with the Qatar National Vision 2030 and the National Development Strategies, the public and private sector in the State of Qatar has created an ecosystem with initiatives to promote the development of Small & Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) and Start Ups.
