Seeking to drive start-up innovation in the UAE and across the region, Meydan One will feature an incubation district as a fully-enabled plug-and-play facility for up-and-coming entrepreneurs in fashion, beauty and F&B, among others. The three-phase incubator program will offer brands competitive leasing incentives and positioning through careful curation, mentorship and support to take new businesses from emerging brands to global ones – born in Dubai and proudly nurtured in Meydan One.
Meydan One also seeks to disrupt the traditional retail experience through reinventing convenience and ease of movement with advanced wayfinding solutions.
