  • Collect feedback from participants to finalize the roadmap and submit it to NAMA for implementation
  • Provide participants with an opportunity to share their own experience and lessons learned within their entrepreneurial journeys
  • Identify potential collaboration opportunities between different stakeholders 

Outcome document

  • Establishing a competition on social entrepreneurship ideas and innovations (for example, the work of the Injaz Foundation in Qatar) to raise awareness on  social entrepreneurship .
  • The use of modern and popular media platforms to promote the concept of social entrepreneurship  among youth
  • organizing short awareness sessions to spread the concept of social entrepreneurship before initiating the  incubator
  • Using creativity and innovation as means to spread social entrepreneurship ideas
  • Defining specific goals that can inspire youth and guide them in the design of their social entrepreneurship projects
  • Benefit from the previous experiences on successful incubators and social entrepreneurship projects in  other GCC countries
