Good news for startups in Qatar :
Driven by "its need to make small businesses big", Servcorp Qatar has introduced and embraced the concept of Coworking space in Doha, kickstarting this workspace solution provider’s growth and development over the years.
The essence of Servcorp’s newest Coworking space, level 21 at Burj Doha, is that it offers businesses all the advantages of a coworking environment and what they need to win.
Coworking is the future of business and Servcorp Qatar has reopened the doors to its refurbished 21st floor of the Burj Doha after an opening event on April 29, according to a press statement.
The event was attended by Dr Axel Wabenhorst, Australian ambassador to Qatar; Raed al-Emadi, chief commercial officer at the Qatar Financial Centre; and Aysha al-Romaihi, Business Development manager at Qatar Business Incubation Centre. Hilal Ali al-Kuwari and Sheikh Ahmad Faleh al-Thani, who are the senior incubation adviser and incubation adviser, respectively, at Qatar Development Bank, also made an appearance.
Servcorp now has three coworking locations in Doha, 160+ across the globe and over 50,000 members of its global commercial community.
Burj Doha, or Doha Tower, has been home to Servcorp’s third Coworking space in Qatar for five years.
Designed by Jean Nouvel and the recipient of the title of the Best Tall Building in the Middle East and North Africa region, Burj Doha is strategically located on Corniche Road in the dynamic business district of West Bay. Taking a non-traditional route, the fully-furnished Coworking space will provide workplace solutions for companies looking to establish a branch office, entrepreneurs looking for flexible workspaces to host their teams, and local businesses looking to cut their operational budget, the statement explains.
All of Qatar’s locations are located in the West Bay business hub. Their Tornado Tower space on level 22 and Commercial Bank Plaza location on Levels 14 and 15 are over 80% occupied and the clients grow their business by trading within the Servcorp commercial community across the region, the company adds.
Fabienne Hajjar, senior manager at Servcorp, believes that their office in Burj Doha provides the highest level of convenience for business owners while still being economic.
Al-Emadi noted We are delighted to be co-operating with Servcorp, a company that is making valuable contributions to Qatar’s growth as an international hub for business and entrepreneurship.”
Hajjar added, “Servcorp is an ideal workspace provider for every scale of business - from startup to multinational - and we encourage the nation's entrepreneurs to visit us and discover this exciting new Coworking space for themselves."
