The first ever Arabian Business Start Up Academy – designed to help develop new businesses in the UAE – is to begin on February 10, the magazine confirmed today.

The opening session will be devoted to laws and regulations affecting new businesses and SMEs,  with lawyers from the Lawyers Business Group providing a two hour training session.

“Knowing exactly what the laws are, and what you need to do to properly set up your new business, is absolutely crucial for entrepreneurs, so we are delighted to make this the first topic in the many sessions we will provide this year,” said Neil King, editor of Arabian Business Start Up.

Topics covered will include Copyrights and Protection of Intellectual Property in the UAE; Overview of the UAE’s Corporate and Commercial Laws;  Legal Framework of Companies operating in the UAE On-Shore sector; Legal Framework of the UAE Free Zones and opportunities created therein;  and Requirements and procedures of establishing companies in the UAE On-Shore/Mainland.

King said that this would be the first of two dedicated sessions on legal issues for SMEs.

The Start Up Academy will feature around 16 sessions of training during 2013, each lasting two hours. The academy will run from 9am. Entry is free for entrepreneurs launching a new business or SMEs.
