Dubai Islamic Economy

H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum

UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai

” The continued developments and changes in the global economy increase the need to constantly diversify the structure of our national economy. Our firm principle in the UAE is not to rely on one single economic resource or sector. The Islamic economy is not new to us, In fact we have accumulated considerable expertise in this field and our aim is the global arena.”

Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum

Chairman of Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority

” We are committed to supporting ‘Dubai the Capital of Islamic Economy’ initiative through promoting economic activities and introducing products & services that are Shariah-compliant. Our support will be directed towards entrepreneurs that focus on the digital technology and Arabic Content creation. This will attract innovation-led investments that will drive the growth of the Islamic Economy entrepreneurship in the UAE. ”

Dr. Mohammed Alzarooni

Vice Chairman and CEO of the DSOA

” We continuously seek to introduce innovations that enable entrepreneurs to take their ideas to the next level. We will utilize the DTEC as an effective hub in nurturing start-ups that are focused on developing Islamic products and solutions. We are confident the centre will become a knowledge resource for education and research that form the fundamental pillars of an Islamic economy. ”

In line with the leadership’s vision of making Dubai the ‘Capital of Islamic Economy’, DSO was mandated to support ‘Islamic digital’ and ‘Arabic content’ initiatives. Due to this commitment, DSOA supports start-ups engaged in these domains through the Dubai Technology Entrepreneur Campus (Dtec), the largest facility of its kind in the region.
With Dtec, DSOA will offer startups and young businesses logistical support, venture capital funding, and relevant incentives. DSOA will additionally engage the support of its partners - including international technology companies - to host global events, road-shows and networking platforms to market Dubai as the platform of choice for Arabic content creation and online solutions.
