Located at the University of Sharjah (UoS) campus, Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center (Sheraa) has launched its second hub in the Emirate. Inaugurated by His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, the space is committed to supporting aspiring entrepreneurs and students alike, by providing access to a variety of resources such as mentoring sessions, workshops, hackathons, plus the chance to be a part of Sheraa's programs.

Talking to Entrepreneur Middle East, Sheraa CEO Najla Al Midfa comments, "This has always been our plan. Sharjah, as you know, is a hub for education and is home to many universities, and Sheraa would like to have a presence in all these different educational institutions, because at the end of the day, they are producing the next generation of entrepreneurs. And we do want to be closer to them."

There are numerous events on the cards for UAE's entrepreneurial community- starting off with Sheraa's new pre-seed program, the Startup Weekend competition set to be held on September 27, followed by the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival (SEF) later in November. So entrepreneurs, get your ideas and startups ready!
