At Sheraa, we believe in human potential.

We have faith in humanity’s ability to generate positive change, and we are on a mission to unleash a generation of entrepreneurs who will build a better future for our societies and beyond.

Sharjah has long been known for its enterprising spirit. Over twenty years ago, His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohamed Al Qasimi, Ruler of Sharjah, envisioned this desert city as a center for education. Today, Sharjah is home to an ocean of young, innovative talent.

Sheraa aims to cultivate this pipeline of future changemakers by fostering a culture of experimentation and critical thought. We also engage with others in the entrepreneurship community to build a strong and globally-connected ecosystem, and position Sharjah as a vibrant startup hub.

Our programs are tailored to every stage of the entrepreneurial journey, providing the support necessary to turn ideas into reality, and creating a solid foundation on which sustainable businesses and thriving careers can be built.

We look forward to sharing that journey with you.

Najla al Midfa, CEO, Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center - Sheraa
