Starting Up

Starting Up is back and better than ever for a second series. It's THE place to learn how to "Be your own boss".

Join Natalie Lindo and our partners from Virtuzone for the ultimate guide on how to take an idea and convert it into that company you’ve always wanted to set up. Each week, the show will have a panel of experts with practical advice, ranging from securing finance to hiring the best talent and scaling a company.

They will also be joined by the region’s top business leaders who’ll share their successes and more importantly, their failures, discussing how it went wrong for them but ultimately how they moved on and in some cases, grew their businesses and made their first million.

Every month, Starting Up will be LIVE from Etisalat's Hello Business Hub in JLT, where a panel of experts will be on call to answer questions, concerns and queries, whether operational, financial or legal. Each of these shows will tackle some of the biggest topics for SMEs right now, such as business banking and other avenues of finances, navigating the world of e-commerce, women in business and leadership and so much more.

If you are starting out or looking for fresh ideas on how to improve your business, make your appointment with Starting Up every Saturday from 13:00 to 15:00.
