How did you get started?
We started this company because we saw a need from both sides: the businesses as well as the students.  By bringing students and companies together, the businesses will learn from the students’ fresh perspectives and innovative insights. The connection will drive economic growth, as the students enable the companies to better deal with the fluctuating demand of our current economy. We will bring great work experiences to high school and university students in the UAE and this will prepare the students for a better future and enrich their lives.

Who and what inspire you?
All social entrepreneurs

What do like about your work? and why?
I love it when we made a great match between a company and a student, and then receive their happy feedback. it is so rewarding to have a positive impact on people’s lives!

How can the community get involved in your business?
We are always looking for more companies that can provide students with great work experience, ranging from 1 day volunteering at an event up to 3 months full-time internships

What do you believe can be done in UAE to make the business prosper?
I love the set-up of YesGulf as I believe businesses in the UAE can only prosper if they make the right connections with other businesses!
