Friday, August 3, 2018

Zubair Small Enterprises Centre (Zubair SEC) delivered a workshop for entrepreneurs in cooperation with Fursah Youth Committee in Buraimi, an initiative which falls under the umbrella of Al Nahda Sport Club. The workshop was attended by a number of entrepreneurs, owners of small businesses and youth.

To help aspiring and young entrepreneurs focus on achieving their business objectives, Zubair SEC had recently signed a collaboration agreement with Fursah Youth Committee and the workshop was part of the framework of this signing.

As per the outline of the agreement, Zubair SEC had agreed to engage with the young entrepreneurs in Buraimi through workshops and trainings and also prove business diagnosis and advisory services.

The workshop provided a brief glimpse of the services provided and the achievements accomplished by Zubair SEC since its establishment. The objective of the workshop was to provide an insight to aspiring entrepreneurs on the plans and actions that are most important for future successes. Advisors from Zubair SEC provided a peek to the participants on the importance of preparing a business plan.

Adel Hubaishi, Senior Advisor, Zubair SEC said, “The workshop was designed for entrepreneurs interested in setting up their business projects in the Al Buraimi Governorate. The interactive workshop focussed on the importance of good planning and taking the first steps to becoming an entrepreneur. At Zubair SEC our aim is to empower aspiring entrepreneurs to pursue new ideas.”

He pointed out that one of the main goals of Zubair SEC is to enable Omani youth to manage their business projects across the various governorates of the Sultanate.

Hubaishi said, “The emphasis of the workshop which lasted for more than two hours was on how to convert business ideas into a reality and how to translate a hobby into a business model.”

Waleed Abdullah Al Badi, head of Fursah Youth Initiative said, “We would like to thank Zubair SEC for its continuous cooperation in supporting young entrepreneurs through initiatives such as this workshop. This reflects their keen interest in supporting entrepreneurs across various regions of man.”

He pointed out that this workshop, which was attended by more than 40 young men and women from different parts of Buraimi, was highly successful.

Al Badi said, “It was a highly interactive session which provided aspiring entrepreneurs an idea as to how to develop and turn their winning entrepreneurial ideas into innovative new businesses.”

Zubair SEC is one of the initiatives which emanated from The Zubair Corporation’s social responsibility strategic vision towards the Omani society.  Zubair SEC is keen on equipping the youth with experiential, hands-on business skills, entrepreneurial apetite, negotiation knacks and teamwork abilities by holding such workshops.

The Zubair Corporation has been a guiding arm to develop a culture of entrepreneurship in Oman and has been supporting young Omanis who aspire to achieve business success.  Since its establishment, Zubair SEC has developed towards a holistic ecosystem providing support and capacity building for the talented ambitious minds. It has also moved beyond traditional mentorship models towards one of partnership, collaboration and team work with its members.
