Dubai Chamber main partner in Innovation Live!
The partnership will bolster interest in the inaugural summit, set for Nov. 21 in Dubai.
“We are pleased to be collaborating with this first-of-its-kind summit that will put the spotlight on initiatives that will drive innovation here in the UAE,” Hamad Buamim, president and CEO, Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said. “Events like these are an ideal platform for us to work with the private sector to ensure that our economy remains competitive.”
The Dubai business community is a top priority for the Dubai Chamber in terms of helping develop and protect the interests of business owners. With this mission in mind, the chamber created DubaiStartupHub, which aims to create an environment that supports innovation and original ideas. The online tool offers information related to resources and services available to the business community while supporting the growth of Dubai’s technology and startup industries.
“The business community in Dubai needs disruption to help the UAE become one of the most advanced countries in the world, and the initiative taken by the summit’s organizer MEED is an important step towards achieving this goal,” Buamim said.
Innovation Live! falls in line with the goals of the Dubai Chamber to provide enlightening information and support private industries that may not otherwise have the tools needed to succeed.
“MEED is proud to partner with the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Innovation Live! Dubai Chamber is an organization that shares MEED’s goal of supporting the private sector and government departments in Dubai to collaborate on innovation,” Richard Breeden, CEO of MEE, said.
