The Abu Dhabi SME Hub, a Khalifa Fund initiative, has launched the ‘Access to Experts’ program, which will allow entrepreneurs to connect with leading industry mentors via the digital platform. Through the ‘Access to Experts’ program, entrepreneurs will have access to a list of experts across three main themes: access to the Abu Dhabi market; business expertise, including design thinking, investment readiness, legal, tax and financial advisory; and industry expertise across F&B, retail, agriculture, financial technology and artificial intelligence.
Entrepreneurs will be able to send their questions to the experts through a live-link on the Abu Dhabi SME Hub, which will then be answered by the relevant expert and shared directly with the entrepreneur. The answers will then be published on the Hub to ensure these recommendations are accessible to a wider audience. The entrepreneurs will also be able to request one-on-one meetings with experts, for short advisory sessions.
The Abu Dhabi SME Hub has invited industry leaders from among the top organizations and institutions in the UAE to contribute to the program, including: Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), ICLO, Emirates Angels, Stratecis, InnovaMENA, M S Accounting and Tax Consultancy, and many more.
The Abu Dhabi SME Hub will progressively onboard new experts for the ‘Access to Experts’ initiative, to cover the business spectrum comprehensively, and offer tailored support to local entrepreneurs.
