Dubai Chamber has launched a new programme, Dubai StartUp Hub, to develop the skills of Emirati entrepreneurs.

The new programme aims to identify new talent amongst the Emirati community and give them the tools and skills to seize a commercial opportunity, thereby increasing the participation of Emirati youth in the private sector.

“The Emirati Development Programme will play a key role in diversifying the scope of support, as it is designed to identify, develop and mentor promising UAE national talent, to equip them with practical business knowledge and entrepreneurship experience needed to stimulate their interest in the private sector,” said, Majid Saif Al Ghurair, chairman of Dubai Chamber.

Dubai Chamber also announced the Training & Mentorship Academy, in collaboration with Dubai Technology Entrepreneurs Campus, a wholly-owned entity by Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority.

The Academy will offer a one-of-its-kind 4 week training programme with top industry trainers, covering topics such as business canvassing, product validation, go-to-market sales and pitching.

The Academy will select 30 participants, who will get guidance and mentoring in honing their skills.
