Dubai has become the premier commercial and tourist hub of the Middle East. The United Arab Emirates government did a good job in transforming the small desert city into a vibrant and a living oasis in the middle of the desert. The United Arab Emirates government must be credited for the positive things that are happening in Dubai in the present. In 2002, they initiated a program that would transform the skyline of Dubai, and after a decade, a lot of construction projects finished, and the city became the home of the world’s tallest skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa. The country’s wealthy entrepreneurs have also extended their assistance to the country’s goal, and one of these wealthy individuals is Hussain Sajwani, one of the country’s billionaires with a net worth of $2 billion.
Hussain Sajwani was an alumnus of the University of Washington, and after he graduated, he went back to his home country and tried to become an employee for a private firm. However, the realized that he the corporate world is not for him, so he decided to leave an established business instead. He focused on food catering, and his business became a hit. It was even franchised to other countries across the Middle East, Central Asia, and Africa. With the success of his business, Hussain Sajwani managed to save a lot of money, and his food catering business made him a millionaire.
When the United Arab Emirates government called upon the country’s wealthiest individuals, Hussain Sajwani heeded the call and decided to help the country in transforming Dubai. He used the money he saved from his food catering business and ventured into the real estate and property development sector. He founded the DAMAC Properties in 2002, and he started building skyscrapers all over the city. The DAMAC Owner managed his business well, and after a few years, the DAMAC Properties have been contracted by other Middle Eastern countries to help them build skyscraper projects and other construction developments.
Hussain Sajwani’s success story is an inspiration for most Emirati, and they are trying to emulate his example of perseverance and determination to make their dreams come true.
