Startups in Dubai have more reasons to get busy in the near future, as Active PR launches their Entrepreneur’s Loudspeaker social media competition. This contest, aimed at startups, requires emerging companies to submit a 2-minute elevator pitch in English or Arabic, explaining why they think their business deserves to be recognized across the MENA region as a viable proposition.
A challenging task for startup owners, who often have an idea but don’t know how to reach their targets. Also an opportunity, as Active PR will encourage audiences from the region to view, comment, discuss and vote for what they consider the best pitch, and the business with the greatest potential.
The winning entry will get three months free PR services, in a package worth over US$20,000:
“What is great about this competition is that the winner will not only reap the rewards of receiving best practice PR exposure, but also have the spotlight cast on their business and offering to potential customers across key target markets in the region,” said Sawsan Ghanem, Managing Partner Active PR.
