Launched by four graduates of the ‘Leadership Programme’ from the Mohammed bin Rashid Centre for Leadership Development, MBRCLD, the Dubai-based ‘Mesh’ platform will become the go-to place for both those seeking opportunities, and organisations looking for outstanding talent, entrepreneurs, innovators and new business models.
The platform is part of a larger economic resilience being built in anticipation of future economic trends such as digital knowledge and participatory economies and positions the UAE – and Dubai in particular – as a global hub for innovative ideas and entrepreneurs.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, praised the founders of the platform in a tweet saying, "We have tasked the graduates to create two ideas for two non-governmental entities that provide innovative services to the community".
Established by Alia Hussain Al Hammad, Mona Abdul Hakim, Hussain Khansaheb and Aisha Rawert, Mesh is a digital business platform that brings together new talent, innovators and independent professionals on a single interactive platform and allows for direct communication without any intermediaries. The platform identifies opportunities and creates new workspaces aligned with the rapidly growing, knowledge-based economy.
The platform provides professionals with real opportunities to showcase their skills and services for free and enables them to present their specialised skills and samples of past work to all participating companies, entities and business owners.
