Bedaya Center for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (Bedaya Center), a joint initiative by Qatar Development Bank and Silatech, concluded its 2019 winter camp which took place from December 24, 2019 to January 2, 2020. The 10-day camp was held to raise awareness among the youth about entrepreneurship and witnessed huge participation from the age group 16 to 24 years old.

The camp included visits to a number of projects owned by Qatari entrepreneurs to give participants the opportunity of job shadowing at these projects to experience the work environment and familiarize with the life of an entrepreneur. A group of workshops were also held to highlight several concepts, such as the best reasons for building a distinguished team, leadership methods, creative thinking and other related aspects that must be known to start and continue in their future projects. Moreover, recreational trips and many activities were included as well to add a fun atmosphere in the camp.

“During the camp, we provided an opportunity for all participants to benefit from the most important concepts and foundations for entrepreneurship through a number of educational workshops. These workshops showed them the most important theoretical concepts on how to apply business skills realistically, and to build a clear vision about the values, rules and standards pursued by institutions and companies through the job shadowing opportunities provided to them, which was a real and tangible chance to get close to the various fields and sectors. We also extend our sincere gratitude and appreciation to all institutions, companies and individuals who provided support and care to Bedaya Winter Camp".
