Dubai has a new strategy to create young entrepreneurs
By: My Salaam
Universities in Dubai could take a lead role in creating entrepreneurs.
According to a new strategy approved by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, students can carry out business and creative activities in economic and creative free zones set up at universities.
The aim is to support students with education, research and funding [delete comma] and to pave the way for universities to produce "not students, but successful entrepreneurial employers".
The new initiative is expected to support Dubai's approach to become a leading global hub for entrepreneurship and investment in knowledge.
“As we approve the strategy to create economic and creative free zones in universities, we set in motion a revolutionary plan that will assist students to realise their dreams in becoming the young successful business leaders of the future,” Sheikh Hamdan said.
