The Abu Dhabi SME Hub, a Khalifa Fund initiative, has unveiled the “Access to Experts” program, which will allow entrepreneurs to interact with leading industry mentors through the digital platform.

According to the statement, “Entrepreneurs will have access to a list of experts across three main themes through the new program: access to the Abu Dhabi market; business expertise, including design thinking, investment readiness, legal, tax and financial advisory; and industry expertise across F&B, retail, agriculture, financial technology, and artificial intelligence.”

Further, entrepreneurs will be able to submit questions to experts via a live link on the Abu Dhabi SME Hub, which will be addressed by the relevant expert and shared with the entrepreneur immediately. The responses will then be published on the Hub to ensure these recommendations are accessible to a larger audience.

Commenting on the new program, Mr. Rashed Al Blooshi, Vice Chairman of Khalifa Fund for Enterprise Development said, “We’re delighted to announce the launch of Access to Experts on the Abu Dhabi SME Hub digital platform. At Khalifa Fund we’re constantly identifying innovative new ways to provide entrepreneurs with access to resources and knowledge that will empower them on their entrepreneurial journey.”

Further, he expects that this program will help to strengthen Abu Dhabi’s economic environment, and he expressed his eagerness to witness the beneficial results while reiterating his commitment to continue onboarding new specialists across the business spectrum.

As per the statement, the Abu Dhabi SME Hub has invited industry leaders from among the top organizations in the UAE to contribute to the program, including Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), ICLO, Emirates Angels, Stratecis, InnovaMENA, M S Accounting, and Tax Consultancy, and so on.
