Oman Oil Marketing Company (OOMCO), in partnership with the Youth Center, recently organised the first Tmakon Forum. The one-day event brought together government entities, young entrepreneurs, and startup founders to connect and share experiences, explore possible opportunities, and learn from other businesses how they managed to stay ahead of the curve. The Tmakon Forum is part of Tmakon, OOMCO’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme launched in September 2023 to empower young Omanis to reach their full potential as emerging entrepreneurs.
Tmakon aims to build the capacity of Omani youth-led startups and small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The Tmakon training programme targets existing Omani owners of SMEs with a track record of good performance, potential entrepreneurs with unique business ideas, and emerging Omani startups with feasible project proposals. It also aims to enable participants to develop innovative thinking and other relevant skills to run a business successfully. People interested in participating in Tmakon can register through the Youth Center, which runs Tmakon with support from OOMCO.
