Activity: Sheikh Khalifa Fund
Activity description: Sheikh Khalifa Fund was established in response to the rising need of support for the small and medium businesses in the country. The Fund’s objectives are to support and develop Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in order to diversify main income streams and develop national human resources in Abu Dhabi. The ultimate objective is to transform Abu Dhabi into a major investment and development hub. The Fund will work in parallel with Abu Dhabi’s strategic economic development initiatives in the various sectors. It will assist in the development of UAE national businessmen and businesswomen who are capable and able to support and participate in the ongoing economic growth and development of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The Fund focuses on the training and development of UAE nationals in order to enable them to manage their projects independently through the provision of high quality training courses and international expertise. The strategic objectives of this program will ultimately reflect on the opportunities for ICT business and investments as well as in building a knowledge economy by raising and supporting SMEs with focus on ICT.
