Accelerating Entrepreneurship and Future Growth in the UAE
July 24, 2019: Our global economies are constantly evolving and adapting to advances in technology. With these evolutions, organizations are playing catch-up to meet the changing demands of consumers and market conditions.
However, entrepreneurs and tech startups are reimagining solutions and shaping trends. They are not only ahead of the game; they are the game. Zomato is now present in over 20 countries, Ola is valued at over $2 billion, and Snapdeal at $5 billion. These startups, and the entrepreneurs behind them, have changed the way we do everyday things, and are introducing us to newer possibilities – all whilst generating jobs and sustainable returns for forward-thinking investors.
The UAE has been watching carefully. Under its wise leadership, it has established Hub71 – a global ecosystem located in the heart of Abu Dhabi, The Dubai Future Foundation – an innovation platform encouraging creative minds, and Ghadan 21 – a three-year Abu Dhabi development accelerator program, in addition to a myriad of others that are fostering an unprecedented wave of innovation for economic and social impact.
We share these entrepreneurial values at BRS Ventures, as demonstrated by Dr. B. R. Shetty who started his first company and went global with his vision. With this, I encourage every one of us to continue imagining, and dreaming about tomorrow – change is one move away. Start today.
