The Access to Experts initiative aims to provide free-of-charge support and mentorship to entrepreneurs at all stages of their journey, helping fast-track their success in Abu Dhabi.
A new Abu Dhabi SME Hub initiative supported by the Khalifa Fund, Access to Experts, will offer startup and SME entrepreneurs, both regional and international, access to top industry experts.
By offering a directory of business experts and professionals from varied backgrounds and expertise, the initiative aims to provide free-of-charge support and mentorship to entrepreneurs at all stages of their journey, helping fast-track their success in Abu Dhabi.
Make your pick of experts from leading entities and companies
The Abu Dhabi SME Hub has invited industry leaders from among the top organizations and institutions in the UAE to contribute to the initiative, including but not limited to: Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), the Khalifa Fund for Enterprise Development (KFED), ICLO, Emirates Angels, Stratecis, innovaMENA, M S Accounting And Tax Consultancy, and many more.
Through the Access to Experts initiative, entrepreneurs will be able to browse a directory of experts across three main themes as a starting point: access to the Abu Dhabi market; business expertise (including design thinking, investment readiness, legal or tax & financial advisory, and more); and industry expertise (F&B, Retail, Agriculture, FinTech, and Artificial Intelligence).
How can you connect with our experts?
Send your questions
Entrepreneurs can send their business questions to the expert of their choice. Answers will be shared directly with the entrepreneur and also published on the Hub to ensure these recommendations are accessible to a wider audience.
Request an advisory meeting
Entrepreneurs will also be able to request one-on-one meetings with experts, for short advisory sessions. Once the Hub qualifies the request, we put the entrepreneur in touch with the expert, after which both parties can arrange for an online session, call, or offline meeting at their own convenience.
You can get in touch for support directly on the Hub: Browse the Access to Experts directory here.
The Abu Dhabi SME Hub will progressively onboard new experts for the ‘Access to Experts’ initiative, to cover the business spectrum comprehensively, and offer tailored support to local entrepreneurs.
