Dubai to launch start-up programme for youth

Area 2071, a collaborative workspace in Dubai, is working on a brand new programme for youth.

That’s according to director Maha AlMezaina, who says the practical programme will teach young people to launch their own companies.

Although no further details have been revealed, an announcement is expected later this year.

Maha, who was appointed as Area 2071's director this month, says that her new role goes to show how young people can make an impact.
