Bee’ah, the Middle East’s leading and award-winning environmental management company, sponsored the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival on November 21st and 22nd. Bee’ah’s participation in the festival was aimed at supporting and inspiring a new wave of sustainable entrepreneurship.

Organised under the patronage of Her Excellency Sheikha Bodour Al Qasimi, Chairperson of Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (SHUROOQ) and Chairperson of Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center (SHERAA), the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival seeks to make Sharjah the regional entrepreneurial hub. The festival consisted of a series of networking events, inspirational sessions, workshops and hackathons, as well as fun activities and opportunities for knowledge exchange with industry leaders.

As part of Bee’ah’s commitment to furthering innovation and supporting the growth of the entrepreneurial ecosystem, the company is a founding partner of the festival, at which HE Khaled Al Huraimel, Group CEO of Bee’ah and Board Member of SHERAA, was a guest speaker.

“We applaud the efforts of Sharjah’s visionary leaders in creating platforms like the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival, which maximize the potential of our youth, while consolidating Sharjah’s position as a premium business destination.” said Khaled Al Huraimel “Our participation and support of this event is driven by our belief that our youth will be instrumental in inspiring positive change and leading our journey towards a sustainable future. Our association with Sheraa has helped us to work closely with budding entrepreneurs, and we believe that their ingenuity and resilience will play a vital role in addressing some of our most pressing challenges. We look forward to actively supporting the entrepreneurs of tomorrow through this festival, and providing them with opportunities to use their talents for the benefit of Sharjah, and the UAE as a whole.”

Bee’ah, through its long-term partnership with the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center (Sheraa), is actively mentoring and funding endeavours in the sustainability field, to support environmental innovators that come out of the programme. Bee'ah's participation in the festival and its one-of-kind exhibit at stand no. 10, was an opportunity for the company to support aspiring entrepreneurs, inspiring them to bring their unique ideas to the environmental sector.

Najla Al Midfa, General Manager of Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center, commented, “We are simultaneously excited and honoured by the response to the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival. With the support of Bee'ah as our strategic partner, we are inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs in the fields of sustainability, environmental management, and renewable energy. This festival is a special opportunity for students and graduates in Sharjah to learn about Sheraa’s three-stage programme (ideathon, incubator and accelerator) and potentially have their innovative ventures incubated at Sheraa”

Taking concrete steps to position Sharjah as a leader in innovation and entrepreneurship, Sheikha Bodour Al Qasimi launched the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center (SHERAA). In the center’s first year, they mentored over 946 young talents through 45 training sessions and workshops. Today, the centre has already inspired a community of more than 3700 aspiring entrepreneurs, through 50 inspirational events, attended by over 100 international and local speakers. Through the youth entrepreneurship programmes’ strategic partnership with Bee’ah, students and graduates have been provided with crucial insights into the inner-workings of the environmental management organisation.
