The Emirati Launchpad™: An accelerator program series for early stage Emirati entrepreneurs

We believe entrepreneurs drive economic growth, build communities, and enhance standards of living. The Emirati Launchpad was launched exclusively for Emiratis in the idea stage or initial stage of their enterprise. We helped Emirati entrepreneurs incubate their business ideas through workshops, mentoring, community engagement, and space utilization to ensure the transformation of their idea into reality.

a. Emirati Launchpad™ – Dubai Real Estate Institute (DREI)
We partnered with Dubai Real Estate Institute (DREI), the educational arm of Dubai Land Department (DLD), and launched the Emirati Launchpad 2.0. This program was held in November 2016, and provided a number of specialized training courses for nationals, aimed towards assisting them in joining the Dubai real estate market, in engaging in various related activities, as well as how to maintain their own projects that they will manage and supervise.

b. Emirati Launchpad™ Ignite Module – Commercial Bank of Dubai
Led by an international team of experts, the Emirati Launchpad Program sponsored by Commercial Bank of Dubai aimed to help and support Emiratis with a business idea. The 7-week Program ended with a pitch competition, winners of which got free incubation and marketing support from Impact Hub Dubai and Darna Media.
