Why Set Hub


Connect with our team to start your business !

In a rapidly evolving global landscape, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) stands as a beacon for entrepreneurs and investors, shaping its identity beyond traditional wealth generators like oil production. Fueled by digital acceleration, robust financial investments, and ambitious targets, the UAE is solidifying its position as a global destination for business ventures.

Dubai, renowned not just as a luxury destination but as an expat-friendly city, is rapidly becoming a global hub for investors and entrepreneurs alike. The city’s allure lies in its world-class infrastructure, strategic geographical location connecting continents, and a plethora of business setup options. As Dubai propels itself into the future, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) already form the backbone of the emirate’s economy, constituting 95 per cent of its businesses. In this dynamic landscape, where digital acceleration and ambitious targets set the tone, Set Hub brings over a decade of expertise to the table.


Setting up your business is a multifaceted journey, and Set Hub is your go-to guide. Their team of over 80 members, fluent in 23+ languages, ensures a global perspective tailored to your entrepreneurial vision. Whether you’re navigating the intricacies of mainland Dubai or exploring the advantages of a free zone setup, Set Hub offers expert insights and strategies to align your business structure seamlessly with your goals.

Embarking on the entrepreneurial journey in Dubai begins with a pivotal decision – where to establish your business and in what form. Set Hub streamlines the process, offering expertise on two primary options: mainland Dubai and the various free zones across the city. 

Mainland Dubai

In mainland Dubai, areas beyond the free zones fall under the purview of the Dubai Department of Economy & Tourism (DET). This centralised management ensures a cohesive and structured approach to the registration and licensing of businesses, providing entrepreneurs with a broad spectrum of opportunities.

Key Features

  • Licence Types: Choose from a diverse range of licence types, including the innovative Dual Licence, allowing companies in certain free zones to operate seamlessly in the mainland as well.
  • Foreign Ownership: Mainland and free zone companies can be 100% owned by non-Emirati investors. However, mainland companies in strategically significant sectors may have restrictions on 100% foreign ownership.

Free Zones

Set Hub facilitates business setups in several renowned free zones, each offering unique advantages to entrepreneurs.
