Dubai is a financial hub and is a city of opportunities. The city has seen a boost in startup companies being established. The government of UAE is popularly known to be a startup-friendly government due to its relaxed taxation policies, safe and secure environment, great infrastructure, and strong technological support available for a business to start and grow fast.

The government has implemented the Golden Visa for "investors and young talents". A foreigner can study, live and work without any support from a national sponsor as well as he can possess his own business in the UAE province. The Golden Visa will be issued for 5 or 10 years giving full opportunity to entrepreneurs to understand the market and flourish their business.

Apart from these, the UAE government has come up with various start-up friendly initiatives like free zones, stable exchange rate, multicultural environment, friendly immigration laws. In the above scenario the collaboration between these two giants, IMT and Fincasa are ready to write numerous new success stories of startups.
