Dubai Municipalitys dedication offering topnotch services variety sectors

The Dubai Municipality's dedication to offering top-notch services in a variety of sectors that are at par with international standards and the Dubai government's guidelines on a complete smart transformation has led to the launch of the geospatial business and innovation incubator, GeoHub. During a visit to the Geographical Information System (GIS) centre, a delegation from Dubai Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) and Hamdan Innovation Incubator assessed the GeoHub and made sure it adhered to accreditation standards. The delegation was advised by the centre's working team during the visit on the objective of the GeoHub incubator as well as its subscription requirements and operational mechanisms.

The incubator is one of the first in the country to be built on two ecosystems: creativity and innovation. The first ecosystem comprises the entrepreneurial environment. The second ecosystem includes the academic development ecosystem.

In the near future, experts and consultants will provide members and entrepreneurs connected to the incubator with the necessary help to put their proposals into action, and the Centre will also hold seminars to draw funding for innovative geospatial initiatives and projects.

The new working model strengthens Dubai Municipality's collaboration with academic institutions and investment firms. Through this partnership, Dubai Municipality aims to create a communication system that is efficient and long-lasting, fostering innovation and creativity to further its strategic vision.

Speaking about the significance of the initiative, Shaikh Hamdan said that it is a crucial step in line with Dubai's mission to promote innovation and entrepreneurship as well as the contribution of young Emiratis to overall economic activity. He continued by saying that it would have a significant effect and inspire a fresh push for sustainable economic development and growth.
