I. the voyage (3 hrs) 

We set out to bring together some of the brightest entrepreneurs in Dubai, most of which were Forbes featured to come together for one yacht trip. 

The purpose was to meet each other, tell their stories, share their wins and challenges, and find new ideas and breakthroughs through collaboration.

What resulted was a great get-together of ambitious minds who, solid representations of their respective industries — who all left with new contacts and joint plans to collaborate together in the future.
