Saeed Khalifa Mohammed Al Fuqaei, Founder and Chairman of Shuraa Business Setup said:“Digitisation has now streamlined most of the operational aspects,but back in 1997, documentation and other processes took up several days and sometimes, even months. At that time, Dubai was attracting a huge influx of foreign entrepreneurs and investors, given its strategic geographical location that provides easy global connectivity, and a better quality of life sought by migrants. Majority of them faced difficulties understanding the laws and procedures of this ‘unfamiliar’ land and we wanted to help simplify their company formation process. The segment was largely untapped despite the potential, hardly anyone was providing professional business consultancy services here.”
Saeed pioneered the quick and hassle-free business setup service provider,and is a well-established and prominent Emirati business figure in the Middle East region.The dynamic business leader, prior to launching Shuraa, had been instrumental inguiding foreign entrepreneurs navigate through business setup formalities in the UAE.The veteran entrepreneur startedShuraa Business Setup with an aim to empower entrepreneurs logistically, enabling their businesses to flourish in a competitive economy. To meet the growing requirements of the UAE business community, Saeed gradually launched Shuraa Tax, Shura Advertising, and Shuraa Business Centres under Shuraa Group of Companies.
The pandemic affected economies around the world, including Shuraa, but the organization recovered soon, as it had already adopted coherent digital solutions.“We are witnessing an era where technology has taken a front seat. We are lucky that the Dubai rulers were quick on implementing technological reforms to build a smarter city. They have been working towards building an e-government with the application of the latest technological tools, such as blockchain and artificial intelligence, for more than a decade now. And thanks to that, many of our operations took place seamlessly during the lockdown as governmental transactions can now be done via e-channels. We must also acknowledge that the government’s promptness with introducing supportive initiatives, such as the citizenship law amendment and a promising 2021 budget of $15.8 billion, has largely comforted the local business community,”Saeed added.
