Do you know about Qatar’s own fantastic start-ups that blossom everywhere? Each new business with Qatar as its birthplace is worth celebrating the success, because it contributes to a unique, entrepreneur-friendly, and self-sufficient Qatar. Some remarkable and clever ideas didn’t have the patience to stay invisible ideas and became actual companies and businesses growing like beautiful weeds in the desert of this country. 

And guess what? These ideas aren’t out of the ordinary but are as inspired and brilliant as their creators. Well and Qatar embraces each one of them to give them a place in this very competitive market.
