Qatar’s leading tech startup, Snoonu, has recently participated in the “National Product Week” initiative, aimed at supporting local companies as part of its commitment towards Qatar’s community.

The National Product Week initiative, launched under the patronage of the Minister of Commerce and Industry, in cooperation with Qatar Development Bank, intends to promote ‘Made in Qatar’ by supporting Qatari companies and SMEs by promoting their products in various means.

Held from 13th to 19th March, the initiative is in line with a series of events, activities, and a conference bringing together prominent stakeholders contributing to the national economy to further discuss topics related to local products.

“We are honored to be an active supporter of this year’s ‘National Product Week’ initiative and to contribute towards developing our local economy. This initiative is highly important for entrepreneurs and sheds light on the challenges that local businesses are currently facing. Snoonu re-iterates its commitment to further supporting all local merchants’ services and products.”

As part of Snoonu’s active community involvement, last year the eCommerce company launched their ‘Love Local’ Initiative by adding an option to its app for “Love Local” dedicated to showcasing local offers, events and dining options.

The ‘Love Local’ initiative consisted of a series of programs and activities designed to help small businesses, which are the backbone of Qatar’s economy, in recovering from financial losses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as raising awareness of the importance of shopping and dining locally.

Snoonu is Qatar’s home-grown success story that aims to be the first local Unicorn company, a privately held startup company with a value of over $1 billion. With over 300,000 users, Snoonu plans to expand and diversify its offering by adding new features and services to its platform, with a goal to expand globally, including the Middle East and CIS.
