Under the patronage of H.E. Eng. Ali bin Masoud Al Sunaidi, Minister of Commerce and Industry, Omran and Injaz Oman announced the winners of the signature student program 'Sharikati' in a ceremony held at the Intercontinental Muscat.
Mathaq Company will now move on to compete against fellow students from across the Arab world at the annual Injaz Al Arab Young Arab Entrepreneurs Competition scheduled to be held in the Qatari capital, Doha in November.
On the occasion, Khalid bin Mohammed Al Zubair, Chairman of Injaz Oman, said, "Sharikati aims to instill a sense of competitiveness in the heart of every young promising Omani while opening new horizons for them to unlock their full potential. This year, we witnessed an outstanding number of young enthusiasts representing various colleges and higher education institutions from across the country. Right from the start, we focused on providing participants with the necessary knowledge on how to set-up a new business through mentorship, interpersonal and business skill development courses as well as logistical support."
A supporter of youth empowerment and particularly of Injaz Oman, H.E. Nasser bin Khamis Al Jashmi, Chairman of Omran, said, "Omran remains steadfast on nurturing the future leaders of tomorrow as we continue to develop unique tourism experiences across the Sultanate. This is reflected both in our partnership with Injaz and instilled within the core values of the company. Volunteers from various departments and ranks in the company played an instrumental role in mentoring the students, giving them a sense of entrepreneurship before entering the world of business."
Eng. Wael bin Ahmed Al Lawati, Omran CEO, added, "Our promise to inspire young talent stems from our considered approach to empower young Omanis to become confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens who are ready to play their part in society. We worked closely with the students guiding them and creating a healthy environment for them to collaborate and communicate efficiently, while showcasing their solid commitment to meet the challenges of a globalized knowledge base economy. This was a learning experience for us as much as it was for the students."
