Encouraging entrepreneurship by providing an environment where creativity and innovation can thrive
At Dubai Holding, we believe that to develop employee business acumen and talent, we need to provide an environment where creative thinking and innovation can flourish.
By offering our employees an internal platform to nurture their creativity and innovation, our aim is to be able to develop their entrepreneurial skills. In turn recognizing Dubai Holding’s initiatives in helping to fully support the UAE’s Vision 2012 in achieving sustainable economic development whilst preserving the environment.
A company-wide initiative, the Dubai Holding Intrapreneurs Challenge is designed to encourage entrepreneurship, innovative and creative thinking amongst all of our employees across our Corporate Office, TECOM Group, Jumeirah Group and Dubai Properties Group.
Taking inspiration from Dubai Holding’s business hubs and creative clusters, Dubai Holding Intrapreneurs seeks to replicate these environments, creating an internal platform for innovation and entrepreneurship to succeed.
The challenge sees employees at every level being invited to put forward their ideas, relating to any of the industries Dubai Holding operates within. A panel of external judges, industry leaders with extensive multi-industry entrepreneurial experience, then evaluate these ideas based on creativity, relevance and potential for implementation. For each challenge, three winning ideas are then selected and awarded AED 120,000.
