Time16:30 - 19:30

Dubai is Centre of Now, as the tag line goes. Here's activity in most sectors, strengthened by the creation of dedicated platforms - Internet City, Knowledge Village, Design District, DIFC, Healthcare City...
Why, then, is it that our entrepreneurial ecosystem is still not where we want it to be. Or is it?

We, IMD GCC alumni club, are delighted to invite you to join us for the first event of 2015, dedicated to discuss the UAE entrepreneurship ecosystem. Where Dubai is with regards to promoting entrepreneurs; what is being done already, who are the involved parties, what can we do better? What can you do?

Our speakers view the problem from very different angles, and therefore should be able to give us varied view points and food for thought. They are:

Dr. Philip Boigner - VP of investments at Dubai Silicon Oasis
Jean-Pierre Mondalek - Uber UAE GM of UBER
Farida El Agamy - GM at Tharawat Family Business Forum
Peter Sleebom - COO and Co-founder of Cobone

We intend for each speaker to make a short, concise presentation, which will be followed by an interactive discussion and Q&A session.
