The Arabian Business StartUp Academy will take place on Monday, March 26 at the Dubai Technology Entrepreneur Centre (DTEC) in Dubai Silicon Oasis.

The theme for the quarterly event will revolve around the newly-introduced Value Added Tax (VAT) in the UAE and its effect on local Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

Industry experts will discuss how start ups can best deal with the new charge, and what it means for the overall professionalisation of the entrepreneurial scene and the country’s working environment.

Registration will begin at 8.30am.

Entry to the Arabian Business StartUp Academy is free for the public but registrations is required.

The event serves as a hub for conversation on the region’s latest business opportunities, start-up disruptions, funding deals, legal and regulatory steps to follow and much more.

It features entrepreneurs, established SME leaders, government representatives and well-known investors, and acts as a networking and informative platform for the Middle East’s growing start-up community, offering advice and insights from key industry experts.
