Welcome to the OmanSupply SME Centre!
With immense pleasure, OmanSupply welcomes everyone to join with our team in this remarkable endeavour to promote and fulfil the dream “Oman Vision 2020”.
It is universally proved that SMEs play an active role in providing massive employment opportunities on a relatively lower working capital than bigger establishments. Moreover, the SMEs act as some subsidiary units of many large companies. Also generate development in the under privileged areas thereby dropping regional imbalances, promising more impartial distribution of national income and wealth.
We need to encourage entrepreneurship, employment, various livelihood opportunities and enhance the competitiveness of SMEs in this changed economic situation. Job creation and economic growth are the two primary outcomes of entrepreneurship. We do understand that there is a long way to reach the peak for making entrepreneurship a traditional career option for youths.
The need of the hour is to inspire the local community to initiate on small and medium ventures. For this, we pledge a nation-wide campaign to focus an entrepreneurship awareness among aspiring youth through various organisations and to educate SME owners who are unable to tackle increasing competition from bigger players. Currently many Micro and SME owners are reluctant to take the risk or task and handed over their existing businesses to workers to run as proxy ownership business. With the efficient use of technology, innovation and creativity we hope to create value across all aspects of the SME sector and deliver the same for everyone involved.
It is really inspiring to notice that various government departments and many corporates in the Sultanate of Oman are also motivating the youth to boost the confidence of new aspirants. Indeed, the new generations are blessed with many opportunities due to the emergence of latest technology at one’s fingertips and massive support like Invest Easy e-service portal of MOCI, TRC, Tanfeedh lab, Riyada, Sharakah, Al Raffd Fund, Innovation Park, National Business Centre, Industrial Innovation Centre, OCCI, Ithraa, Oman Development bank, Oman SME Development Fund etc. The only thing is just go ahead with your daring dream project without any hesitation. And keep in mind the fact; ‘Technology, Information and Enterprises are the words synonymous with today’s global economy.’
The boundaries between nations have got diminished today; the world is a digital global village. At present, SMEs do not have any strategic system or tools for their business development as compared to large industries. Marketing is one of the major challenge in which SMEs are facing in this economic downturn, which is crucial for their growth and survival. Large enterprises have enough resources to employ professionals to take care of marketing of their products and services. With the use of digital technology, SMEs can launch their new or existing products and services locally & globally at an astonishing pace.
Our long efforts and focus was on developing a business model which will be a sustainable one not only to challenge the present economic downturn but also to inject an awareness in the young generation’s mind towards an entrepreneurial culture in the society, there by promoting our own SMEs in order to enhance the national economy through economic diversification and transforming the Sultanate of Oman as the region’s most sought manufacturing & logistic hub.
We are sure that, this is only a small beginning and certainly have a long way to go. OmanSupply will indeed implement its best practices and technology on a continuous basis to create an ecosystem of sustainable growth for the SME sector ensuring greater financial freedom and potential growth. Therefore, we request everyone to get connected with this noble campaign and to push forward to a higher altitude in the future.
Entrepreneurs, Consultants, Engineers, College Lecturers and even retired persons with knowledge & expertise in their respective field can participate through the SME section of this unique web portal as a mentor, in order to guide the educated local youth to convert as young entrepreneurs and for giving a facelift to the existing SMEs with a global outlook.
Once more we congratulate and extend our sincere gratitude to everybody for their gesture to help us to implement this mission and being part of this community-minded venture and look forward to joining hands in producing ‘job creators rather than job seekers’.
