The ceremony also honoured the first batch of graduates from the Academy, with 104 people successfully completing the Entrepreneurship Diploma and the Professional Hospitality & Restaurant Management Certificate programmes offered at the institution.

The Academy is a first of its kind initiative from Dubai SME, part of the Department of Economic Development, and aims to provide existing and potential entrepreneurs with the skills and knowledge required to become business leaders.

Abdul Baset Al Janahi, CEO of Dubai SME, said: “The Dubai Entrepreneurship Academy is a novel initiative which will lead to a stronger support system for SME owners and future entrepreneurs, and ensure they have the necessary skills and experience to succeed.

“The programmes offered by this Academy will go a long way in turning entrepreneurial ideas into business plans and lead to more enterprises being launched in the UAE.”

The Academy features a range of courses and programmes, including ‘how to attract funds and grow your business’, ‘think creatively’, and ‘secrets of effective leadership for entrepreneurs’.
