150 entrepreneurs join Intilaaqah at Riyada’s Bright Ideas Workshop

MUSCAT: As part of the first phase of ‘Intilaaqah at Riyada’ programme, a Bright Ideas Workshop was conducted at the Wilayat of Nizwa recently.
The workshop aimed at enhancing the entrepreneurial skills of 150 budding entrepreneurs — enabling them to think creatively and come up with business ideas, whilst equipping them with the knowledge and skillsets required to evaluate the feasibility of implementing the same business ideas.
Set up as with the national initiative of promoting entrepreneurship and the role of SMEs in Oman’s economy, Intilaaqah at Riyada’s Bright Ideas Workshop series target entrepreneurs that are interested in starting their own businesses and have a business idea, or have recently set up a business, or those who intend to develop an existing business; or simply those that aspire to become successful entrepreneurs.
The workshop, which was held at Nizwa College of Technology, is one of 15 workshops carried out at 10 different wilayats of the Sultanate.
The previous series witnessed the implementation of 9 workshops with more than 150 participants from Muscat, Ibri, Salalah, Suhar, Rustaq, Khasab and Nizwa. Future workshops are scheduled to be held in Salalah (April 12-13), Buraimi (April 16-17), Suhar (April 18-19) and Sur (May 7-8). The last workshop will be held in Ibra (May 9-10).
Shell Development Oman’s ‘Intilaaqah at Riyada’ programme is jointly implemented by the Public Authority for Small and Medium Enterprises Development and Shell Development Oman (SDO).
