QBIC, a QDB Incubator, launches third wave of LMP

LMP targets manufacturing projects in Qatar to support national and local industries


Doha, Qatar: The MENA region’s leading mixed-use business incubator, Qatar Business Incubation Center (QBIC) – founded by QDB – launched the third wave of the Lean Manufacturing Program (LMP), aimed at developing the manufacturing capabilities of local emerging companies and taking them to new levels. Candidate projects are to receive six-weeks of training on the most important aspects of plant operation and product development.

LMP targets manufacturing projects in Qatar to support national and local industries. Participants in the program are trained to develop their ideas leveraging the advice of local and international experts and partners. In this wave, a large number of applications were received from ambitious and promising projects and companies, and 15 companies were selected for the program to receive education, training, and development.

Commenting on the occasion, Executive Director of Advisory and Incubation at QDB Mr. Ibrahim Abdulaziz Al-Mannai said, “We are pleased with the applicants for this LMP’s edition and the great ambitions of local companies. This adds to our responsibility in developing the program year after year. The LMP is in line with our efforts at QBIC and QDB to support the industrial sector in the country and advance the capabilities of emerging national industrial companies.”

Speaking of the participating projects, Al-Mannai continued, "We are looking forward to seeing the companies that will come out of this wave. They will constitute a strong part of the private sector at the level of manufacturing local products that will boost the national economy."

Participating entrepreneurs are also to gain a thorough, hands-on understanding of the holistic manufacturing process through a series of practical sessions that are based on the lean methodology. Towards concluding the project, participants will be able to present their achievements to a specialized committee and potentially receive financing, a dedicated workshop space, and on-going coaching.
