Arabian Business Start Up is launching a series of workshops for entrepreneurs, the Dubai-based magazine has confirmed.

The Start Up Academy will focus on specific topics to assists entrepreneurs in a range of fields, including setting up offices, legal issues,  raising finance, recruitment, PR and media strategies.

Neil King, editor of Arabian Business Start Up, said: “The future growth of our economy lies in the hands of SMEs and start ups, and it’s important we do whatever we can to help facilitate their growth. The Start Up Academy is effectively a workshop, during which we will bring experts in each field to provide information and training on specialist topics.”

He added: “These will very be based on simple questions that need answering, such as should you hire a PR company, and if so, how? How do you get an offshore bank account? What are the best ways to get a licence? How can you raise finance in this market? Our audience will be both already established SMEs looking to take their business to the next level, and also entrepreneurs looking to start their own businesses.”

Start Up Academies are expect to run twice a month from February, each session lasting around three hours. Entry will be free for anyone working in SMEs or looking to start their own business.
