The National Business Competition “Al Fikra”


About Us

The Qatar Development Bank (QDB) is organizing the seventh edition of the National Business Competition “Al Fikra” 2019, which aims to support entrepreneurship development in Qatar by identifying the top business ideas submitted by Qatari entrepreneurs who have the potential to transform such ideas into successful business projects. The Competition will be divided into three categories: the “Emerging Ideas” or Al Fikra Startup, which is a competition for general business ideas, Al Fikra Mashroie for university students, and Al Fikra Challenges, which allows entrepreneurs to find solutions for some of the challenges that can be turned into business ideas and projects that can serve Qatar. The top three winners of the competition will benefit from QDB’s services, such as incubation, financing, and consolations “Isteshara”, to convert their ideas into businesses and other awards. Al Fikra is one of the most important platforms for QDB to achieve the bank’s mission for a diversified economy and to support the Qatar National Vision 2030.
