Creative Zone and Dubai Business Women Council (DBWC) have partnered to accelerate the progress of women entrepreneurship in the UAE, through a set of diverse entrepreneurial and educational initiatives.

Spearheading the collaboration, it is a delight to announce the launch of our ‘Incubator and Accelerator Programme’ that aims to benefit 100 selected women through a 12-week intensive online training program.

With innovation and education central to the development of human capital, the programme targets an expansive group of women that are either employees (regardless of position and industry), entrepreneurs or other professionals seeking to enhance their occupational knowledge and skills. The 12-week module will provide theoretical and practical courses led by renowned entrepreneurs and industry experts.
