"TiE Dubai is proud to be associated with du as part of its goal in fostering entrepreneurship in the region," said KS Parag, president, TiE Dubai.

"Du, being an innovative telecommunication provider with a clear mandate of driving value to SMEs and enterprise businesses, shares the same vision as TiE Dubai in promoting entrepreneurship."

By partnering with TiE Dubai as a Gold Sponsor, we are able to extend our reach by supporting events that bring entrepreneurs together with members of the business community. Networking opportunities such as this are vital for developing sustainable business relations that foster growth."

Through the collaboration, du's executive management will be present at various TiE workshops and events as guest speakers and the telco will support entrepreneurs by providing business advice from its executives.
