Muscat: The National Business Centre (NBC), which falls under the umbrella of the Public Establishment for Industrial Estates (Madayn), signed recently an incubation pact with Al Darna Canteen project.
Based on this agreement, Al Darna Canteen will be based in the Knowledge Oasis Muscat (KOM) and will offer its services to the employees, entrepreneurs, students and visitors in KOM.
Al Darna will utilise the services offered by NBC, which include intensive training, coaching and mentoring to enhance entrepreneurial skills through a cutting-edge environment that will allow the company to flourish, network, form partnerships, and have access to business mentors.
The concept of Al Darna is based mainly on cuisines cooked in selected Omani homes according to quality, health and hygiene standards, taking into consideration that these families have official permits to practice home businesses. Then, Al Darna takes the responsibility of the resale process through its point based in KOM 4 building. Al Darna offers selections from the Omani and Zanzibari cuisines, as well as selections from the Mexican, Arab and Indian cuisines.
It should be noted that the NBC is an initiative launched by Madayn at the KOM to offer promising Omani entrepreneurs a platform to develop their business ideas and advance them into growing ventures.
The centre offers a premier platform for Omani entrepreneurs by providing business development support and guidance, training and mentoring, access to markets and industry experts, and state-of-the-art and fully equipped office space, meeting rooms and presentation facilities.
