About us

Dubai Startup Hub is the entrepreneurship arm of Dubai Chamber; our main purpose is to empower entrepreneurs through a series of programs, workshops, trainings, marketing, promotion, and advocacy efforts.

Dubai Startup Hub is committed to both supporting overseas startups in expanding to the Emirate, and local startups to scale their business globally.
With our international reach (Dubai Chamber has multiple offices across Latin America, Africa and Eurasia) we facilitate startup trade missions, cross-border mentorship programs and connection support to better equip entrepreneurs for success.

For ease of navigating the Dubai entrepreneurial ecosystem, Dubai Startup Hub produces a quarterly Panorama publication, whether you’re looking for funding opportunities, incubator and accelerator data or the government’s viewpoint on entrepreneurship in the UAE, the publication aims to simplify and shorten your time in accessing and understanding the Dubai market.

To me, a creative idea and a motivated dynamic team is what a startup needs, and a spirit that will never be afraid to fail, instead valuing failure as an opportunity to learn and evolve to be better and successful.
