Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) uncovered key details about its initiative Open Minds, a new program striving to provide the support for entrepreneurs and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to adjust and react to business difficulties introduced by the worldwide spread of COVID-19.

Arranged by DCT Abu Dhabi’s MAKTAB libraries and lasting until October 2020, the program will give 200 entrepreneurs with a chance to take part in a series of intensive courses covering a range of business topics, including how to meet the particular commercial hurdles under the global pandemic, how to bring one’s passion to life in business, and other related topics.

Entrepreneurs and SME proprietors who register with Open Minds will also have access to the Dar Al Kutub e-library, enabling them to explore the vast catalog and develop their knowledge of a wide range of subjects. The e-library has many business administration books and welcomes reviews, permitting readers to connect and share ideas. In addition, useful information will be made accessible on the Dar Al Kutub social media channels, granting readers quick and easy access to helpful resources.

“Due to the current circumstances, we has an opportunity to rethink the programmes and support we provide to society. As the UAE works to encourage innovation, research, and business growth, supporting our local entrepreneurs is a necessary action, as we seek to further develop the important role they play in our economy.

“Through the Open Minds program, we are steering towards unlocking the endless potential of our citizens and residents. As the culture of entrepreneurship and small business ownership continues to blossom, we look forward to encouraging a new generation of independent innovators fuelled by a spirit of creativity and ambition. ”

DCT Abu Dhabi is operating closely with suppliers and partners, both locally and in the GCC region, in order to present entrepreneurs with the essential support and guidance.
