Established in 2020, SME Tribe is a business development and professional support initiative founded by the Khalifa Fund for Enterprise Development. It brings together emerging and aspiring entrepreneurs, business leaders, and industry participants from the retail, tourism, healthcare, ICT, agriculture, financial services, and real estate sectors. Two decades later, SME Tribe’s networking and learning events continue with great success.

At these networking and knowledge-sharing events, industry leaders and government officials offer their time, share knowledge, provide valuable insights, and offer helpful advice – encouraging collaboration, business growth, and enhancing the UAE’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.

SME Tribe is highly valued by the business community for exchanging ideas and experiences and serves as a forum for knowledge sharing and inspiration. Attendance at the in-person sessions has been growing steadily, and the quality of partners and speakers is impressive, adding great value to this unique business community program. The Q&A and Meet the Speaker sessions have also been highlighted as incredibly valuable.

Project Outcomes

The Khalifa Fund’s SME Tribe meetups offer the business community in Abu Dhabi a range of networking and educational experiences as part of their annual programme.
