Creating strong, inclusive and innovative start-up communities, the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center (Sheraa) and Sharjah Youth Council (SHJYC), came together to host their first-ever workshop series. The nine-part series provided aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunity to enhance their skills, share knowledge and support each other, further building a vibrant entrepreneurship ecosystem.
The workshops core objective was to generate tech-enabled solutions for existing real-world problems. Attendees learnt how to validate their ideas through various tools such as, the business model canvas, value proposition, customer interviews and competitor analysis. Additionally, they also identified key steps required to launch a tech-enabled start-up.
“We pride ourselves on being present during these moments of community building, where new paths for entrepreneurs are paved, and genuine relationships with like-minded parties are developed. One of the key themes of the Sharjah Youth Council, has been entrepreneurship, and thus, this came as a natural partnership to help inspire and encourage the youth in their contribution towards the UAE’s future success,” said Najla Al Midfa, CEO of Sheraa.
Saeed Al Nazari, director general of Federal Youth Authority, praised the role of Sheraa in empowering the aspired young people to acquire sustainable projects through a series of constructive and motivational ideas with high competitive capabilities, in order to keep up with the needs of society and have a positive impact in their communities.
The participants of the workshop will also get to be a part of Sheraa’s monthly “From Idea to Startup Series” – an event that focuses on having a speaker share their entrepreneurial journey, discuss failures and also provide insights on contributing to the overall entrepreneurship ecosystem of the UAE.
