Businesses in Dubai have the option of starting their own businesses free of charge, with a focus on helping people to find work and getting their money out of poverty.
The initiative was announced in a new brochure on the Dubai Businesses’ Institute website.
The Businesses are also giving business owners the opportunity to create a business from scratch, and to apply for financial aid.
“It’s a big step forward for Dubai.
The world’s largest emirate has some of the most stringent regulations in the world and it’s important that businesses are treated fairly,” said Ibrahim Al Fadili, director of the Dubai Institute of Business.
“The UAE has an incredible talent pool, but the business climate has been tough.
The fact that they have now taken this step is great news.”
It’s not the first time Dubai has offered businesses a boost in terms of business opportunity.
It launched the Entrepreneurship Fellowship in 2008, a free programme for budding entrepreneurs to find jobs, training and financial aid in the city.
Businesses have also taken advantage of the “Business Entrepreneurships” programme, which provides free training to business owners and employees.
