What prompted your venture into the business world? Share the story of Care n Cure Group.
Care n Cure came to life in the early 2000s as a retail pharmacy brand. Slowly and steadily, we grew into a chain of 50+ pharmacies across Qatar. With time, we realized the need for a company that can bring in products such as pharma, nutra ceuticals, medical devices, equipment, and more. Having said that we have diversified further into segments in and around Qatar with the launch of Care n Cure Trading. After firmly establishing itself in the country's healthcare sector, we expanded into the FMCG, Technical, Engineering, and Telecom division.

Being the Founder & Chairman, how do you plan to apply your exceptional understanding of this domain to the Care n Cure Group of Companies and take it to the next level?
My learnings come from the root level of being a customer first and then a retail chemist as well. I understand both parties very well through my education and the initial experience I gained as a pharmacist. Further when I joined Julphar (a pharma manufacturing company) I under stood various manufacturing processes including Quality Control and other background work. Subsequently, being into sales and marketing gave me exposure to various crucial aspects of the pharma business. Also, my journey as a professional gave me golden opportunities to interact with leaders and business persons who have taught me a lot. All of it has helped me to strengthen my abilities and equipped me to handle crises, lead the business at Care n Cure, and understand what's happening at the various levels of hierarchy.

What advice would you like to put forth to budding entrepreneurs?
It is vital to believe in yourself and have an open eye to learning. Have an interest to evolve with the dynamic nature of industries and learn from others. Don't focus on the processes and textbook methods, instead, keep an eye on the result and customize the processes by levering the learnings to achieve the goals.
