The initiative is a joint effort by Potential FZ-LLC, a Dubai-based business development company, All World Network, a US-based global economic development firm and Professor Michael Porter of the Harvard Business School.

SMEs are encouraged to apply for the UAE 25, and the winner will be recognised as a global-standard entrepreneur.
