BEDAYA, Lulu conducts informative workshops about retail platforms
Bedaya Center for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (Bedaya Center), a joint initiative by Qatar Development Bank and Silatech, concluded a series of informative workshops conducted in collaboration with Lulu Hypermarket.
The workshops were conducted as a part of Bedaya’s Foundation Program for 2020 to help entrepreneurs in order to enhance and develop their businesses and educate them about the requirements needed for their participation at major retail stores.
These workshops come under the center's efforts to spread the culture and concept of entrepreneurship and enhance the role of youth in society.
In line with preventive and precautionary measures that are being taken to limit the spread of the Coronavirus, the workshops were live-streamed via “ZOOM” over a period of three days.
During the workshops, attendees listened to a detailed explanation about the preparations and industrial standards they should be familiar with to facilitate cooperation with Lulu Hypermarket that will subsequently enable them to display their products and market them in the best possible way.
During the first workshop, the center’s coaches and advisors shed light on the concept of developing projects through the presence of their products in major retail outlets, along with the right mechanism for obtaining licenses, and the logistics that must be provided by entrepreneurs.
In addition, the coaches also briefed the attendees on topics such as hygiene, sterilization, maintenance, components and the products’ materials.
During the second day, logistical matters, innovative storage methods, and deliveries were reviewed. Participants were also informed about invoicing system and the required certificates for products and the barcode system. The third workshop dealt with the packaging system, the best pricing practice, in addition to a detailed explanation about export system.
Speaking about the initiative, Mr. Abdulla Faleh Al Saeed, Board Member and Acting General Manager of Bedaya Center said, “Through the Foundation Program workshops, we seek to enrich and enhance the capabilities of entrepreneurs in all directions, whether directive or indicative. Our objective is to guide potential entrepreneurs and put them on the right path to venture into the business world. We will continue with our efforts to provide educational and informative workshops and varied consulting services to help them achieve their desired goals.”
Dr. Mohamed Althaf, Director of Lulu Group International said, “I hope that these workshops for new entrepreneurs have given awareness and support for starting and growing business in Qatar. These workshops would greatly increase the success potential for new entrepreneurs. We, at LuLu Hypermarket, will be happy that we will be dealing with a set of new entrepreneurs with quality information, advice, and training. We look forward to closely collaborate and be part of their success stories”.
