1) Determine your niche:
- What is your specialty? Which UAE & GCC product do you know about?
- What problems do people need solved in the UAE markets?
2) Create a plan:
- How will you make money? What is the most feasible revenue model?
- What will the company and product do for people?
- What is the long term goal of this company and what are the milestones along the way?
3) Build your team:
- Who will work with you on this project? Do you have access to adequately talented professionals in UAE & GCC?

What are the Different Types of Small Businesses?
There are many different types of small businesses. The most common type is a “microbusiness” which employs less than five people and has less than $1 million in annual revenue. Furthermore, businesses can be categorized as one of four types: sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, a corporation or Limited Liability Company.
- A sole proprietorship is a business that is owned by one individual who may or may not be actively involved in its operations.
- A partnership is a business that has two or more partners who share responsibility for the success or failure of the business and divide profits accordingly.
- A corporation is a legal entity that can enter into contracts and be sued in its own name.
- A limited liability company (LLC) combines features from partnerships and corporations to provide limited liability protection to its members while still allowing them to share in profits and losses according to their percentage ownership stake in the company.
How to Choose the Right Industry for Your Startup Idea?
There are many factors that need to be considered when choosing the right industry for your startup idea. The first thing you need to do is research the industry and find out what it’s like. You should also think about how your product will fit in this industry, whether it will be able to compete with other products in the same space, and if there is enough demand for it. For example, launching a business that creates augmented reality experiences for customers can be beneficial as UAE & GCC countries are turning towards the same to enhance the beauty of their cities.
The most important thing is to be able to execute on your business idea. You need to make sure that you have a plan for executing the idea and you know who your target customer is. You also need to ensure that there is a market for your product or service before investing too much time or money into the business.
Thus, with all that in mind, you can now begin your journey to becoming a successful entrepreneur. Follow the guidelines of business and see your business grow exponentially in the UAE and GCC!
