(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Shell-Intilaaqah Oman held the second in a series of scheduled graduation ceremonies for the Omani entrepreneurs who recently completed Intilaaqah's Entrepreneurial Development Programme (IEDP) in the Dakhliyah governorate.

Further ceremonies are expected to be held in Sur, Sohar, and Salalah throughout June. The Dakhliyah governorate ceremony celebrated the graduation of 183 Omani entrepreneurs and was held at the Golden Tulip Hotel, Nizwa under the auspices of H E Dr Sheikh Khalifa Hamed Hilal al Sadi, governor - Dakhliyah.

The event was attended by Shell representatives, including Hashim al Hasani, Intilaaqah - executive director Oman, dignitaries from the public and private sector, Intilaaqah's training partner Modern Gulf Institute (MGI), and aspiring Omani entrepreneurs. In his opening remarks, Hasani gave some insight into how Intilaaqah is providing support and development for young entrepreneurs seeking to establish their own business and SMEs seeking to expand.

He stated, ''Intilaaqah's training assists young entrepreneurs in their journey to becoming successful entrepreneurs. We help entrepreneurs to get the fundamentals right and to understand their personal abilities, the business environment in which they work, the local market and their competition. Our existing partnerships, including the one with Aiyal, a W J Towell SME initiative, will help entrepreneurs such as the ones here today by offering them tangible business opportunities.''

Launched on July 8, 2013, the IEDP programme equips entrepreneurs with the necessary tools to run a successful business. Course topics include business management, strategic planning, project management, financial planning, marketing, communications, and human resources. In order to complete the IEDP course, participants are required to submit and present their business plans to Intilaaqah's panel, and, upon course completion, graduates are connected with Shell-Intilaaqah Oman's strategic business partners, including W J Towell, for potential business opportunities.

To qualify for the seven week IEDP programme, participants must attend a Bright Ideas' workshop to further strengthen their knowledge about entrepreneurship. Following this workshop, the most promising entrepreneurs are chosen by Intilaaqah's panel for the IEDP training. 2,045 students came to the Bright Ideas workshops over the past year, and, over the coming months, Intilaaqah will celebrate the graduation of 250 entrepreneurs who completed the IEDP training across regions of Sur, Sohar and Salalah.

The Intilaaqah programme is part of Shell's global LiveWire initiative, first launched in 1982 to address youth unemployment in Scotland. Since its inception, the programme has grown rapidly to become one of the industry's largest organisations for young entrepreneurs, with a social network of more than 100,000 members.

The Intilaaqah programme has been a breakthrough in more than eight countries in the Middle East and continues to provide support and guidance to young entrepreneurs. Oman was the first country to launch the Shell Intilaaqah programme in 1995.<
