The QSTP Accelerator is an intensive three month program designed to provide aspiring entrepreneurs with training and mentorship to help them take their idea to market. The QSTP Accelerator combines funding and mentoring to help participants achieve three main objectives:

  • Create a very rough conceptual prototype (Minimum Viable Product) of your idea
  • Verify whether your idea is commercially viable 
  • Pitch your idea to potential investors

Benefits to you:

We offer the following benefits:

  • Coaching & Mentoring from our experts who specialize in the commercialization of technology-based inventions
  • Financial Support up to 364,000 QAR
  • Office Space
  • Networking Opportunities

Who Should Apply:

The Accelerator is open to individuals (not institutions) who are residents in Qatar. These individuals have a technology-based invention, but require mentoring, funding and physical space in order to assess the commercial viability of their invention and pitch it to potential investors. If your application is successfully shortlisted, you will be invited for an interview to discuss the details of your idea and provide us with a 5-minute pitch. 

How to apply:

Application is now closed. Stay tuned for new cohort dates.
