Qatar Foundation – Unlocking Human Potential
Qatar Foundation for Education, Science, and Community Development (QF) is a private, non-profit organization that is supporting Qatar on its journey from a carbon economy to knowledge economy by unlocking human potential, for the benefit of not only Qatar, but the world. Founded in 1995 by His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the Father Emir, QF is chaired by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser.
QF’s work encompasses education, research and community development. World-class universities are brought to Qatar to help create an education sector in which young people can develop the attitudes and skills required for a knowledge economy. At the same time, QF builds Qatar's innovation and technology capacity by developing and commercializing solutions through key sciences. The Foundation also works to foster a progressive society while enhancing cultural life, protecting Qatar’s heritage and addressing immediate social needs in the community.

GROWBY - the official chatbot
A first-of-its-kind AI Chatbot, Growby helps launch startups by assisting and mentoring teams before, during, and after the program.
Startups in our program validate their ideas quickly to avoid wasting time on a product nobody wants. Teams meet their potential customers right on the city streets of Doha to see if their ideas will hold-up.
Startups present their ideas and solutions to all other participants, mentors and visitors at our public Startup Exposition. Teams will need to pitch their product while responding to questions to gain feedback from industry professionals and fellow peers.
