Launch of The Tharawat Space


Tharawat Magazine and its sister company Tharawat Family Business Forum celebrated the launch of The Tharawat Space Dubai. As the first co-creation space dedicated to family business and multi-generational entrepreneurs in the MENA region, The Tharawat Space is an initiative by the Tharawat team to provide a one-stop shop for family enterprises to meet their peers during events and roundtables, exchange ideas, or just to have an “office away from the office”.

Check out some of photos from the events below for a peak into our office as we host the launch events:

In the minutes before the Launch, the Tharawat team is busy at work, prepping the Space and finalizing details for a successful event.

Each wall of the Space is themed, which includes whiteboards about family business governance and a place where guests can write suggestions.
