Dubai Startup Hub launches 8 guides for startups
To support entrepreneurs, startups in the UAE to do business
Dubai Startup Hub launches eight guides.
The decision was made at Dubai Chamber’s fifth and final ‘Networking Series’ organised in cooperation with Virtuzone, and targeted startups and entrepreneurs and ran from mid-October to mid-December 2020.
The new guides cover eight key sectors: Fintech, Healthcare, Transportation, Education, F&B, Social Impact, Sustainability, Travel, Tourism & Hospitality. They provide resources – including relevant data, statistics, opportunities, and legislation – for entrepreneurs looking to launch startups in each of the eight sectors, offering advice on applying for licences.
The guides also provide a comprehensive list of business incubators and accelerators to help entrepreneurs grow their startups and events that focus on their specific sectors.
The fifth edition of Dubai Chamber’s Networking Series drew more than 360 participants, 22 per cent of them Emirati entrepreneurs, in addition to startup owners from around the world tuning in for the virtual event.
“The guides are an innovative new tool to help promising startups in each of the target sectors,” asserted Natalia Sycheva, Senior Manager, Special Projects and Entrepreneurship at Dubai Chamber.
“The Dubai Startup Hub’s mandate is to support emerging companies and help them understand and navigate the procedures for establishing businesses in Dubai,” she explained.
The initiative, she said, facilitates the exchange of knowledge and lays solid foundations for partnership and cooperation, all to drive growth in the emirate’s startup scene. This ultimately boosts Dubai’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and strengthens its position as a global destination for new businesses.
Dubai Chamber’s Networking Series has drawn more than 1,650 participants throughout its five editions, including entrepreneurs, startup founders, and investors, where a total of 48 meetings were held.–WAM
