The arrival of a new private financing platform in the UAE to support start-ups, private enterprises and SMEs will give a huge boost to “key engines of the country’s economic growth”, a legal expert said today.

Dubai Startup Hub, an initiative of Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, has leveraged GITEX Technology Week 2018 to showcase its wide variety of programmes, initiatives and services catering to Dubai’s startup community in Dubai.
