Becoming an entrepreneur in Dubai

Dubai’s status as an emerging market makes it an ideal place for entrepreneurship. With the constant influx of new residents from every corner of the world, new markets are constantly opening. The Dubai government strongly supports entrepreneurs through the Mohammed Bin Rashid Establishment for Young Business Leaders and the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation. Both of these organizations seek to motivate young Arab leaders to become integral parts of their region’s economy.

The first step in starting your business is to create a viable business plan which outlines the aims of the company and communicates to investors and future clients the reasons they should work with you. Government support for young Emirati entrepreneurs is exceptionally generous and there are several grants available for those with a strong business plan. For example, Dubai Chamber has set up Tejar Dubai or Entrepreneurs Development Program for budding entrepreneurs amongst UAE nationals to develop and mentor promising business ideas.
There are several ways to obtain funding for a new business, including business loans from financial institutions and business grants from the Dubai government. Attracting venture capital is an option for initial funding and is often a serious part of many investors’ portfolios.
 
Another growing area in Dubai and the Arab world is the rise of social entrepreneurs, who create companies not just for a profit but also to fulfil a need in society, or to conserve the environment.
