UAE firm, European group partner to offer entrepreneurship education in Dubai

Located in Dubai, the SD Centre for Entrepreneurial Excellence will offer subjects such as new venture creation, internationalisation strategies and entrepreneurial finance

Dubai-based New Learning has partnered with European firm Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship to set up a new facility to offer entrepreneurship education in the UAE.

Located in Dubai, the SD Centre for Entrepreneurial Excellence (SDCEE) will offer courses for aspiring entrepreneurs as well as existing executives.

The facility will support entrepreneurs and encourage them to identify business opportunities, develop and implement their business ideas and grow a strong network, a statement said.

The programmes offered will benefit nascent, startup and scale-up entrepreneurs and the topics covered as part of the entrepreneurship learning will include broad subjects such as new venture creation, growth and internationalisation strategies, entrepreneurial finance, family business, impact investing and social entrepreneurship and corporate finance.

The facility will also have other initiatives such as conferences, internships, networking events and venture funding support along with mentoring sessions, competitions and entrepreneur days, where individuals would be encouraged to sell their products and ideas.

It will be managed by faculty and researchers from Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship and others from the GCC region.

“We believe everyone can become an entrepreneur and we will develop their mindset and skillset and to embrace their purpose and become impactful leaders through an innovative and entrepreneurial approach,” said Martin Luxemburg, managing director of Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship.

Shailesh Dash, board member and mentor, Newage Learning, added that the centre will evolve and grow to meet the increasing demand for entrepreneurial curriculum and experiences in the region.

The UAE has been focusing on growing entrepreneurship in the country via several new initiatives and policy changes.

In September, the country launched a new international campaign called ‘United Global Emirates’ to highlight the benefits and incentives that the UAE offers to help entrepreneurs go global.

The campaign will also highlight the benefits to entrepreneurs, startups and investors of all sizes and stages of choosing the UAE as a launch platform.
