About Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp

It was in 2017 that a team of youths realized the need of an intensive program dedicated to brewing up young entrepreneurs from across the globe since most of the events on entrepreneurship at that time were dedicated to existing entrepreneurs rather than creating new ones. Giving the realization a form of event, the team designed and organized the Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp (GEB) from September 2nd to 4th, 2017 in Kakani, Nepal.
Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp was introduced as a 4-day educational/leadership session designed for the youth. GEB brought together many young innovative minds from around the world and placed them on a common platform to innovate and create new businesses through collaboration. The primary aim of GEB has always been to provide participants an overwhelming lifetime experience to develop the necessary entrepreneurial skills to start their own venture. GEB is the platform to interact with mentors, successful entrepreneurs who are willing to hear what budding entrepreneurs are thinking of and guide them on the right path to making a successful startup.
GEB is an incredible opportunity to be exposed to new cultures and perspectives, both entrepreneurial and otherwise. It is also an opportunity to exchange and share ideas with other participants. GEB creates an environment where people from all backgrounds can create, innovate, collaborate and compete in a friendly atmosphere.
The success of the first edition of the Bootcamp led to the second edition being organized in Bangkok, Thailand from January 15th to 18th, 2018. Likewise, the third Bootcamp was held in Jakarta, Indonesia from 2nd to 5th July 2018. The fourth edition of GEB was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 17th to 20th December 2018 followed by the fifth edition in Bangkok, Thailand from 27th to 30th June 2019 and sixth edition in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 16th to 19th December 2019. The 7th edition of Bootcamp was conducted after COVID from 22nd to 25th July 2022 in Bangkok, Thailand.
GEB has grown successively from an educational and leadership session on entrepreneurship to a bridge connecting the innovative minds and global investors by the seventh edition. In each successive edition, GEB has constantly updated and revised its format in order to make it simpler for young minds, keeping its originality unharmed. GEB has always focused on imparting entrepreneurial education, with special emphasis on Asian and African countries where the entrepreneurial ecosystem in lacking entrepreneurship is just a new term.

United Arab Emirates (UAE)

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is also known as “City of Gold” because of its stunning transformation from a sleepy Gulf port to a world-renowned business hub in just a generation. Whether you are fond of towering skyscrapers, massive malls, golden desert or emerging business opportunities, UAE has something for everyone. UAE has much more to offer for tourists that want to learn more about its rich, vibrant culture, gourmets searching for exotic food, and daredevils seeking thrilling, adrenaline-pumped activities. The United Arab Emirates is known for its fast development compared to the early times when the world did not know about it.


Dubai is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the planet. The place is renowned for its opulent shopping, luxury hotels and resorts, vibrant nightlife, awe-inspiring architecture and awesome beaches.

Dubai is a city of skyscrapers, ports, and beaches, where big business takes place alongside sun-seeking tourism. Because of its large expatriate population, it feels like a Middle Eastern melting pot, and the atmosphere is generally tolerant. Religious affiliations are not a prominent aspect of city life.

From humble beginnings as a small fishing village first documented in the 18th century, the city grew rapidly as it became a major center of the pearl-diving industry. With its business-savvy ruling family reducing taxes and welcoming foreign merchants, the city expanded further in the early 20th century and soon became a re-exporting hub.

Entrepreneurship in UAE

UAE recently ranked first in the world as the best place to start a business as per the Global Entrepreneurship Index. This is largely due to the opportunities, skills, education, access to finance and support that the country offers entrepreneurs. With its strong infrastructure, the country provides the right platform to scale up a business. SMEs and start-ups comprise more than 94 per cent of the market in the country and employ more than 86 per cent of the private workforce. Further, UAE is aiming to nurture 20 unicorns or start-ups valued at over USD 1 billion by 2031.

The entrepreneurship ecosystem in the UAE has been greatly enhanced through several decisive measures and decisions taken at the federal level, which include allowing full foreign ownership of companies in all activities, providing golden visas for entrepreneurs, in addition to dozens of promising advantages and incentives. Over the past two decades, specialized free zones have also contributed to establishing a solid foundation for entrepreneurship in the UAE. With its supporting strategies, the Ministry of Economy seeks to increase the number of SMEs in the UAE and enhance the contribution of this sector to the GDP.

For young entrepreneurs and startup, UAE offers Tax free environment, world-class and leading infrastructure, local and international advantageous trade practices, easy company formation and setup followed by locally -based incubators, accelerators and investors
