Dubai: Tejar Dubai, an entrepreneurship development programme formed by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI), launched three commercial projects — Roundup Food Trucks, Hamburgah and Maitha Al Zaabi Financial Auditing and Consulting.

The objective of the programme is to support creative and commercially-minded youth to help turn their business ideas into reality.

The three projects were launched in the presence of Dubai Chamber officials, including Majid Saif Al Ghurair, chairman; Hamad Buamim, president and CEO, and Essa Al Zaabi, senior vice-president, institutional support sector and general coordinator of Tejar Dubai.

Buamim said the launch of these projects reflects the Chamber’s commitment to support the culture of entrepreneurship while helping young Emiratis to enter the world of business.

The entrepreneurship development programme not only supports young entrepreneurs to develop business ideas but also provides them with training and tips from experts in the field, he added.

He praised the enthusiasm shown by the young entrepreneurs in coming up with innovative ideas while striving hard in turning them into viable business projects. He wished them success.

Hamburgah is a fast food delivery and burger catering firm. Staff will come to your location to do burger catering for small and medium events like birthday parties, family gatherings and expos.

According to Ahmad Almulla, owner of Hamburgah, the idea behind setting up this fast food chain was to provide customers with an easy ordering experience.

The venture was set up owing to the demand in fast food catering. The sector has good potential for growth, he said, adding that Hamburgah stands for quality as the company adds high quality ingredients in preparations.

The Maitha Al Zaabi Financial Auditing and Consulting firm provides financial advisory services to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) on legal issues, financial guidance and recommendations, bookkeeping, and internal and external auditing services based on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and the UAE law.

Maitha Al Zaabi said that the auditing and consulting field has always attracted her. That inspired her to get professional certificates and experience in this field, which will come handy in her business. She thanked Tejar Dubai for helping her establish this business.

Al Zaabi added that the programme helped her in completing government formalities like licensing while the training and workshops set her thinking about the project’s expansion.

Roundup Food Trucks is an enterprise that rents and sells trucks for food catering businesses, promotion of products and offering of ATM or other mobile utility services. These trucks can be booked through a smart application. The company can also obtain required government permission for the mobile service.

Rafia Al Mulla, owner of 54º East company, which provides the Roundup Food Trucks for rent and sale to catering and other businesses, said this concept in mobile catering is gaining popularity in the hospitality sector. These trucks can be used to offer all kinds of mobile services, including promotion of products, banking and other related services, she said.
