The entrepreneurship award is an award presented by the House of Lords to individuals who demonstrate exemplary leadership and innovation in their respective fields. Al Qasimi was given the award by Lord Ahmed of Rotherham, the renowned Muslim Labour peer. “Sheikha Lubna’s business acumen combined with her foresight and dedication has made Tejari.com a prominent brand, not only in the Middle East but throughout the world. She is a true inspiration for women everywhere and it gives me great pleasure to present her with this entrepreneurship award on behalf of the House of Lords,” said Lord Ahmed at the ceremony.

This recognition highlights the growing global awareness of the Tejari brand as well as the hard work and customer focus of all of my colleagues contributing to the development of the online marketplace,” she said.
