Williams F1 join Silatech in encouraging Middle East entrepreneurs

Williams F1 set up the Williams Technology Centre in Qatar in 2009, an entity tasked with the progression of R&D projects for industrial, competition and road car applications.

Very recently, Williams F1 kicked off a partnership with Her Highness Sheikha Mozah’s social enterprise Silatech establishing a programme to encourage entrepreneurship in the Middle East. The programme will directly address issues, such as unemployment, facing 18 to 30-year-olds throughout the region.

Using Williams F1’s expertise in engineering and motorsport, the partnership will implement motorsport-themed workshops, a mentoring program, internships and campaigns encouraging young people into engineering and motorsport-related careers.

We definitely need more creative initiatives such as this in the region! What do you guys think?

    The thing about Qatar is they make it attractive and easy for multi-nationals to want to invest in the market, whereas in Kuwait it’s tough. Williams F1 is a team with great history and to see them promoting entrepreneurship in the Middle East is a fantastic thing. Let’s just hope we get to see more things like this pop up throughout the region.
