A team comprised of College of the North Atlantic-Qatar (CNA-Q) students and instructors has presented a business model at Rowad 2019 that is intended to fill empty seats at businesses, and save customers money.

Business Management student Fahad Al-Hedfa delivered an informative presentation on how to launch a successful company.

The CNA-Q team, led by Marketing Instructor Peter Robertson has developed Not Busy Now, an interactive marketing App that allows businesses to make money and save time. The App was developed by CNA-Q D2L Project Administrator Vince Stack. “CNA-Q has given me a solid foundation on how to start a business, said Al-Hedfa,” It has been a fascinating journey preparing to launch Not Busy Now. There have been challenges, but that is to be expected when starting a new business. The training I received at CNA-Q has helped teach me how to overcome those obstacles, and launch a successful business.”

Al-Hedfa presented the business model at Rowad 2019, an exhibition aimed at celebrating and spreading entrepreneurship in Qatar, which took place at Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre. “We are very proud of this talented team,” said Business Management Dean Stuart Jauncey. “This is exactly the type of thing CNA-Q was designed to do. Teach students how to do something then see that instruction come to fruition in the form of this brilliant new business idea.”

Robertson said Not Busy Now hopes to have its official launch in the near future.
