At the 2018 STEP Conference in Dubai, we talked to entrepreneurs who had worked with Dubai Startup Hub, the entrepreneurial support arm of Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, to learn how the entity had supported them in their business endeavors. 

In this episode, we spoke to Evolvin’ Women founder Assia Riccio, who shares with us her thoughts on starting up a social enterprise, and how Dubai Startup Hub’s Market Access program helped open doors for her in terms of taking her business forward. Riccio notes that while starting a social enterprise is not easy, the results it can offer makes the journey well worth it. “My hope is that one day all entrepreneurs will look at how they can make a social impact out of what they are doing,” she says.
