Nasab, a members-only workspace and social club for entrepreneurs and artists, located in Wadi, KOA Canvas in Dubai, has just unveiled The Nasab Recovery Programme in support of homegrown businesses affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our primary concern is first and foremost to do what is most safe and what is right, for our members, staff and the city’s wider business community," says Founder and CEO of KOA, Mohammed bin Zaal. "We were the first members club to close down, having done so voluntarily before the full stay-at-home status. We were more cautious than others and we feel it was the right thing to do—to put people over profits."
The inaugural programme is set to offer complimentary offices and workspaces to up to 30 businesses for a generous six months, along with the tools to recover from the inevitable impact of the global outbreak.
"We have spent the last few weeks completely immersed with liaising with our members on a 1:1 basis as we believe that businesses who take care of their customers will survive this most difficult of times," explains bin Zaal. "We know that what is in our control is how we extend practical compassion, warmth and support to the wider entrepreneurial community."
In line with the objective of launching Nasab, namely, to provide a 'home-away-from-home', the programme will provide an environment for creatives and leaders in technology, design, art and fashion to thrive.
"We want to keep this spirit alive through the Nasab Recovery Programme – continuing our legacy for creating first of their kind initiatives in the UAE," says bin Zaal. "The team have worked extraordinarily hard to create an incredible space; we can’t wait to now see the community grow within it.”
The deadline for submitting applications is 15 July 2020.
