In line with His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s vision of an innovation-led economy for Dubai, the plan for the creation of an Innovation Hub was announced in 2014.
Strategically located in the heart of TECOM Group’s Dubai Media City, Dubai Internet City, and Dubai Knowledge Park, the dedicated business community will ultimately provide 170,000m2 of innovation complexes, technology laboratories and smart buildings for start-ups, SMEs and multinational companies to thrive.
Versatile commercial spaces will mingle with retail and hospitality outlets to create a buzzing environment, additionally, a calendar of industry related events and activities will benefit the companies within the community, as well as encourage like-minded organisations and talent from around the world to the Innovation Hub.
Phase 1 will be delivered in 2017, with completion due in 2019 when a 15,000-strong workforce will call the Innovation Hub home.
At its centre, a cluster of state-of-the-art communications and technology facilities will be the beating heart of the district, an infrastructure for creativity, networking and collaboration across a vibrant community of innovators and creative thinkers.
