Grand Opening Event: Dukan Bedaya

On Sunday, the Bedaya team had the pleasure of announcing the grand opening of Bedaya Dukan – a cosy little shop where SMEs and start-ups can gain visibility, set-up shop and display their goods at a strategic location within Katara.

For weeks, intensive hard work and planning has been put to create Dukan, the latest addition in the line of Bedaya’s ongoing initiatives that are designed to support local businesses.

During the grand opening event, Ms. Reem Al Suwaidi, General Manager at Bedaya, and Mr. Abdulaziz Al Khalifa, CEO of Qatar Development Bank and Executive Chair of Bedaya, introduced Bedaya Dukan to the public and encouraged everyone to support this platform by visiting and, of course, by spreading the word.

“The opening of [Bedaya] Dukan is yet another exemplary initiative of Bedaya to support entrepreneurs and start-ups. It aligns with Bedaya’s goals to assist young people to start their own new business in order to have a new generation of entrepreneurs who will be tomorrow’s foundation to build Qatar’s brightest future,” said Ms. Reem Al Suwaidi, General Manager at Bedaya.

For his part Mr. Abdulaziz Al Khalifa, CEO of Qatar Development Bank and Executive Chair of Bedaya said, “At QDB, we seek to facilitate the promotion of local entrepreneurs and the Qatari private sector. The opening of [Bedaya] Dukan will support the growing number of SMEs and boost entrepreneurial innovation in the country, thereby creating more opportunities for the future generation of business leaders.”

The Bedaya Dukan platform is going to be open to visitors daily from 10am to 10pm (Friday hours: 4pm-10pm). Not to mention, there are going to be new businesses setting-up shop every two-weeks! (all-the-more reason to drop by and have a look around). 

مركز بداية يفتتح رسمياً:

قام مركز بداية بافتتاح “دكان”، والذي يوفر مساحة تمكن أصحاب المشاريع الصغيرة والمتوسطة من الإعلان عن أنفسهم وعرض منتجاتهم في موقع استراتيجي بكتارا.

استغرق افتتاح “دكان” أسابيع من العمل الشاق والتخطيط، والذي يعتبر إضافة جديدة لمبادرات مركز بداية التي تهدف لدعم المشاريع المحلية.

وقد قام السيد عبد العزيز آل خليفة، الرئيس التنفيذي لبنك قطر للتنمية ورئيس مجلس إدارة مركز بداية بافتتاح “دكان” بحضور السيدة ريم السويدي، مدير عام مركز بداية للعامة بهدف دعم هذه المنصة من خلال زيارة “دكان” والمساهمة في الإعلان عنه.

وبهذه المناسبة قال السيد عبد العزيز آل خليفة: “نسعى في بنك قطر للتنمية لدعم رواد الأعمال المحليين في القطاع الخاص في قطر. وبافتتاح “دكان” بداية سيتم دعم عدد من المشاريع الصغيرة والمتوسطة المحلية، كما تدعم هذه المبادرة الابتكار الريادي في الدولة، وبذلك ستتاح المزيد من الفرص لأجيال المستقبل لأن يكونوا قادة في مجال الأعمال.”

من جانبها قالت السيدة ريم السويدي، مدير عام مركز بداية: “إن افتتاح دكان بداية يعد مثالاً آخراً على مبادارات المركز في دعم ريادة الأعمال والمشاريع الصغيرة والمتوسطة. ويتماشى “دكان” مع أهداف “بداية” لمساعدة الشباب في تأسيس وتقوية مشاريعهم بشكل يسمح بوجود جيل جديد من رواد الأعمال ليصبحو أساساً قوياً لبناء مستقبل مشرق في قطر.”
وستكون ساعات عمل دكان بداية يومياً من الساعة العاشرة صباحاً وحتى العاشرة مساءً من السبت إلى الخميس (ومن الساعة الرابعة عصراً إلى الساعة العاشرة مساءً يوم الجمعة).

ومن الجدير بالذكر أنه سيتم تغيير المشاريع كل أسبوعين للحفاظ على التنوع وإتاحة الفرصة للجميع لأن يعرضوا مشاريعهم ومنتجاتهم، والذي يعد سبباً إضافياً لزيارتنا!

How to hire for your business


On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.

Hala al Kuwari

But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure.
