Creative generation of entrepreneurs to successful projects around the globe
I would like thank His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, for his patronage to the launch of the Dubai Entrepreneurship Academy, and the unlimited support and guidance he continuously provides to creating a new generation of successful businessmen and women capable of leading us towards a bright future.
His Highness has always said that "Entrepreneurship development is the first and foremost strategy to promote business in Dubai." His Highness’s vision continues to inspire Dubai SME to work with SMEs and entrepreneurs, enabling them to contribute towards steady and sustainable economic development in Dubai.
The Academy is a novel initiative by Dubai SME, the agency of the Department of Economic Development mandated to develop the SME sector, which will lead to a stronger support system for SME owners and future entrepreneurs and ensure that they have the necessary skills and experience to succeed. The Academy will provide the required knowledge and skills to our target community.
I am confident that this Academy can positively influence overall economic development in Dubai and the city's position as a vibrant hub of business.
Abdul Baset Al Janahi,
CEO of Dubai SME
