Qei Holdings has been established as a community driven initiative by two parties namely, The Atlantis Dream Team and Caban Investments Ltd. The venture signifies the beginning of true equitable distribution and empowerment for the people of Atlantis and this is the foundation of local economic development (LED).
Qei Holdings will have in its fold, a range of commercial and industrial enterprises that will benefit the entrepreneurs and local economy of Atlantis.
The venture will operate on a hybrid business model. The Atlantis Dream Team, a registered NPO, will conduct the communities’ social and environmental agenda, under the leadership of Maggie Vaas, while the holding company, Qei Holdings, will be responsible for commercialising economic opportunities, on behalf of the people of Atlantis. These range from tourism to manufacturing.
Qei Holdings will thus foster a range of enterprises over the next 5 years. The first of which is Qei Enterprises, a mixed manufacturing incubator. A 1000m2 factory has been identified for the incubator and this will become home to local 5 entrepreneurs who have been carefully selected to enter the Qei Enterprises incubation programme.
