Emirates 24/7, a United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) online news outlet, recently profiled the Endeavor affiliate office in Dubai, which was announced in October of 2013.
The official launch of the UAE affiliate was marked by the 51st Endeavor ISP which took place December 10th – 12th, 2013 in Dubai, where the country’s first entrepreneurs, Duplays and PropertyFinder, were selected after a rigorous round of interviews and deliberations with some of the region’s top investors and business leaders. As Endeavor’s seventh affiliate in the Middle East, the organization’s growing presence in the region recognizes the thriving community of entrepreneurs that has made it a key global market.
Noor Shawwa was named Managing Director of the office, and will oversee a team on-the-ground in Dubai. See a list of the founding board members, which includes top local Endeavor Entrepreneurs and investors, by clicking here.
“We’re thrilled to include the UAE as a member of the Endeavor network,” said Endeavor co-founder and CEO Linda Rottenberg. “This is one of the world’s fastest growing economies and we hope that we can help bring a number of locally based businesses to scale and play a role in fostering entrepreneurship here.”
