Business and Coffee project helps youth to implement their business ideas. “NAMA provides this excellent initiative to youth who find it difficult to bring ideas to reality, and transfer ideas to successful projects that benefit Qatari community and makes a good addition to the country.” Al Mohannadi invited all entrepreneurs who face difficulty with projects implementation to participate in the promising initiative that brings ideas to life.

The project seeks to empower and support young people to become qualified and capable of managing feasible and creative, small and micro-enterprises, as well as encouraging entrepreneurship and innovation. The project offers unique and distinctive ideas to entrepreneurs and business owners who find it difficult to implement their projects. It also gives them the needed support for cooperation and acquaintance by meeting the local community in specific places that contribute significantly to achieving this cooperation.

Such communication would help entrepreneurs transfer their expertise to pave the way for entrepreneurs or ambitious start-up project owners, as well as to identify the reasons for their success and the most important difficulties and challenges they faced. In addition to that, it will highlight the importance of the role of local entrepreneurs and their contribution to the development of local economy, to spread the motivation and inspiration messages among the audience and entrepreneurs.
