Tejar Dubai participants launch two new business projects

DUBAI: Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry initiative, the Tejar Dubai Entrepreneurship Development Programme, saw the launch of two new business projects, “Moz Flowers” and “Maktabi” by Emirati participants of the programme recently.

The “Moz Flower” project was launched in the presence of Abdul Rahman Saif Al Ghurair, Chairman, Hisham Al Shirawi, 2nd Vice-Chairman, Dubai Chamber, and Head of Tejar Dubai Selection Committee Panel, and Essa Al Zaabi, Senior Vice-President, Institutional Support Sector, Dubai Chamber, and General Coordinator of Tejar Dubai.

During the launch ceremony, Hisham Al Shirawi stated that the Tejar Dubai Entrepreneurship Development Programme is headed in the right direction in nurturing the business ideas of young citizens and helping them to establish their own small-to-medium-sized businesses under its three key pillars of assess, assist and attain.

He stressed that the training programme is directly contributing to the creation of business ideas due to the extensive on-site training, mentoring and business advice provided by experts in the field as well as the assistance provided in turning the participants’ business ideas into a reality.

On her part, Moza Al Heraiz, Founder and Director, Moz Flowers, said that she came up with the idea which developed from a market study which showed a shortage of flower shops and their outmoded ways of operations.

Hamad Eghdani, owner of the recently-launched “Maktabi” under Tejar Dubai said that his office provides SMEs with an opportunity to manage their business hassle-free as his business takes care of managing accounts and assets, human resources, contracts, stores, sales and customer service while helping companies to improve their management process and governance.

The Tejar Dubai initiative launched by Dubai Chamber offers a specialised programme and platform for youths to help them establish their own small-to-medium-sized businesses.
