NEST Co-working space at TRYP by Wyndham has partnered with FUN DXB for the coming year. FUN DXB is the local version of a global movement born in Mexico in 2012, where hundreds of people attend each event to be inspired by entrepreneurs who share their failures and recount their learnings and subsequent successes. Each event is followed by a Q&A and networking session to bring audiences closer to the inspirational speakers.
FUN DXB kick-started its series with an evening featuring four of the region’s most up-and-coming entrepreneurs. The line-up included Ahmad Ali, Founder of CERT and Xtract Coffee, Alexandra Maia, Founder and CEO of House of Social, Omar Tom and Reem Hameed, Founders and Hosts of the Dukkan Show, as well as Omar al Busaidy, Author of “Just Read it”. Admission to FUN DXB was open to the public at no charge.
On the success of this new partnership, Jessica Edwards, NEST Curator, commented: “FUN DXB is one of the best grassroots events supporting Dubai entrepreneurs out there. Guests can always rely on an uplifting night filled with enthusiasm and positivity, celebrating failures because ALL entrepreneurs experience failure as a stepping stone to success. NEST is so thrilled to partner with the FUN DXB team to inspire more talent to become fearless entrepreneurs and help scale the local start-up community.”
Jay Menorca of FUNDXB added: “We are very glad to have finally found our new home in Dubai after months and months of searching. NEST coworking space provides a strong arm to FUNDXB to sustain its monthly event, and, as a non-profit, we can only thrive with the support of the community and private organizations who truly believe that failure is a part of entrepreneurial life. We aim to organize FUN DXB every month during 2018 and break the social stigma that failure is synonymous with shame. It’s our mission to reach and inspire the rising numbers of entrepreneurs in Dubai, especially start-ups and SMEs.”
Located within the new TRYP by Wyndham Dubai, NEST represents one of the world’s first full-service co-working spaces integrated with a major internationally branded hotel. The vision for NEST is to become Dubai’s most innovative, creative and entrepreneurial community under one roof, acting as a catalyst for new ideas, beginnings and connections in line with the Ruler’s pioneering vision for Dubai as a global hub of innovation and business excellence.
