Dubai Residency for Global Entrepreneurs

Did you know that Dubai is the only city in the Middle East to rank among the top cities for entrepreneurs in the world?

Dubai’s status as the safe haven of the region has always been a major puller for today’s Global Entrepreneurs, topping it off is Dubai’s entrepreneur-friendly business landscape,
a high-income economy, excellent healthcare system, an international commercial and luxury hub, top-end and lavish villas and apartments, some of the biggest shopping malls of the world and the best international board schools.

The recent introduction of financial regulations and reforms in the last few years, coupled with its handling of the coronavirus crisis, has helped make the UAE a “model country” for people to live, work and invest in.

Learn more about surviving and thriving your business, in the post-pandemic era, from none other than the global firebrand, Vusi Thembekwayo, South African venture capitalist, entrepreneur and Founding CEO of MyGrowth Fund Venture Partners & IC Knowledge Bureau, in an exclusive webinar on the business opportunities available to global entrepreneurs in Dubai and the UAE.
