The Path to Successful Entrepreneurship

Tamakkan successfully held its second seminar session of 2015 entitled: “The Path to Successful Entrepreneurship” wherein all attendees ranging from startups to big time CEOs were given helpful insights on the latest trends regarding the business scene within the United Arab Emirates. In addition, the seminar also focused on success stories of businesspersons within the country. Tamakkan is a knowledge-sharing platform established by BrandMoxie, a leading advertising agency in the UAE operates under the patronage of Fatima bint Hazza Cultural Foundation (FHCB). The event was supported by Pinnacle and Aldar. The event began with Khalid Al Ameri, Senior Associate of the Mubadala Development Company, who gave the audience central ideas to work on when starting off a business. “Entrepreneurship is not about the money – it’s about living my life by my own terms.” said Al Ameri who’s also a motivational speaker known for inspiring fellow Emiratis and even Expats as well in his aim to teach and educate the young generation without even being paid. Dr. Constance Van Horne and Dr. Victor Huang went on with the seminar and spoke about their Entrepreneurial Framework of the UAE wherein they discussed the current situation of businesses and the entrepreneur mindset not just within the UAE but also on a global scale as well. One of the most important points that Dr. Huang mentioned was: “You cannot use the static perspective – you have to think about the evolving nature of the business environment.” and Dr. Van Horne explains further: “You have to adapt because customers change. Our needs change. Our demands change and new competitors cover the market.” Tamakkan also featured three entrepreneurs who are making waves in Abu Dhabi – Founder and CEO of Mom’s Guide Abu Dhabi Esraa Rothman explained how she was able to start Mom’s Guide both without a solid plan and without paying a single dirham. Grafika Boutique and Seen owner Sumayyah Al Suwaidi told the story of how she was rejected by one well known fashion event in Dubai which led her to be inspired to launch the Abu Dhabi Fashion Days. Co-Founder of Gulf Elite Mag Mohamed Amine Belarbi shared his entrepreneurial journey on the lessons he learned and is still learning to this day to the audience.       UNDER THE PATRONAGE OF FATIMA BINT HAZZA CULTURAL FOUNDATION  Supported by PINNACLE PERFORMANCE AND ALDAR PRESENTS THE PATH TO SUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEURSHIP Breakthrough research on entrepreneurship in the UAE, and valuable insight on challenges and opportunities for entrepreneurs!
