Lavin Nalinbabu, Business Consultancy
The Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone is on a move to make it a women-friendly destination. The free zone is planning to offer two new business packages (one-year and three-year), that are exclusively dedicated to women entrepreneurs.
The starting price of the package is Dh6,200, which comes with a free zone license, shared workstation and eligibility for a UAE residency visa. It also includes various other support services such as business cards.
If you are opting for the three-year business package, you will be awarded a free investor visa, worth Dh3,950. “We are very proud to launch the RAKEZ Business Women Package, which is a clear testament to our commitment of encouraging more women to achieve their entrepreneurial dreams,” says Ramy Jallad, group chief executive of RAKEZ.
Women applying for the package will be provided with eight license types to choose from. These are commercial, educational, e-commerce, general trading, individual/professional, media, service and freelancer.
RAKEZ, a free zone that houses more than 14,500 companies, has conducted women-centric events before as well. “We have used these events as platforms to get to know what challenges they are facing and what can we do to support them,” says Jallad.
Earlier RAKEZ had come up with start-up business plans for final year students and new graduates. The starting price of the package was Dh650 a month and it includes a business licence, a shared workstation and a residency visa.
RAKEZ is one of the leading free zones in the UAE, that is blessed with a strategic location connecting growing markets of Middle East, North Africa, Europe, and South and Central Asia.
