The Digital Incubation Center (DIC) was created to boost ICT innovation in Qatar, particularly among young people at the critical early stages of starting or growing a technology-related business.

The DIC is looking for entrepreneurs capable of harnessing emerging technologies to create innovative products, solutions, or services that will contribute to Qatar’s digital economy.

We offer startups free office space, technical support, training and guidance, mentors who can help new businesses avoid the typical start-up pitfalls, and the exposure and public relations from being a part of the DIC.

Successful startups with abilities to grow and scale up will be hosted as tenants in Qatar’s Digital Cluster in Manateq Economic Zone.
