Entrepreneurs and growing businesses based in the UAE are encouraged to take part in the Inspiring Futures event hosted by the British Business Group Dubai and Northern Emirates in partnership with enterprise development firm Adam Bradford Agency.
As the UAE is positioning itself as one of the world’s leading ecosystems for business, innovation and enterprise, British entrepreneur Adam Bradford, 28, hopes that this creative initiative will provide an extra boost for the region and its emerging talent.
‘We’ve been working with entrepreneurs and the ecosystems which support them for the past ten years through our business. We have seen in recent times a real appetite for entrepreneurs wishing to base themselves in an attractive market with great infrastructure, global access and a forward thinking marketplace. We are excited to work with a great network of partners to showcase the innovation and potential of the region this November.’
To be held on 17th November at a Dubai venue Inspiring Futures will provide a networking and support platform to upcoming business leaders to build their network, receive expert advice and world-class support to take their ideas to the next level. Bradford, whose work with entrepreneurs and young professionals won him an award from Her Majesty the Queen in 2016, will invest his own business’ cash in providing support and services to a proven talent as part of the initiative.
‘We are inviting all local entrepreneurs or British entrepreneurs with strong UAE market plans to apply to pitch at our open-house pitching event, which will be a top class opportunity to build strong contacts and receive feedback and support for emerging business ideas. We will also choose one winning entrepreneur to receive a package of support worth 5,000 AED as well as professional services support to help them take the crucial next steps in their endeavours.’
‘The Inspiring Futures event and surrounding activity is fully supported by the BBG Board and newly established Future Vision Collective – a focused committee for the under 35s – as an exciting initiative to attract and encourage young entrepreneurs and talent in and to the region. Adam Bradford’s expertise and passion will drive the campaign with the backing of our established British business community, regional network and social media channels ’ John Martin St. Valery, Chairman, British Business Group Dubai and Northern Emirates.
Leading the panel of professional businesspeople judging the entrepreneurs’ live on the night pitches will be Adam Bradford, owner Adam Bradford Agency, John Martin St Valery Chairman at British Business Group and other senior representatives of the international business community.
The event is open to British Business Group members and non-members and concludes celebrations as part of the Global Entrepreneurship Week initiative which runs from 8 – 14 November 2021.
More information including how to enter a business idea, and to sign up for the event will be released in coming days.
