TAMAKKAN, BOLD THOUGHT LEADERSHIP.
Tamakkan is an entrepreneurship and innovation social enterprise that offers guidance to policymakers, strategists and entrepreneurs. It was established in 2009 in Abu Dhabi, UAE as a knowledge sharing platform that leverages the readiness of experts/ consultants to give back to the community enabling the initiative to offer free seminars to entrepreneurs and startups.
The platform’s aim was to offer a knowledge and networking ecosystem for entrepreneurs seeking guidance on ‘success triggers’ that mitigate the high rate of SME failure. But the events soon developed into a space where entrepreneurs could meet other diverse businesses, but also policy makers, VCs, academicians and others, furthering collaboration, experimentation and innovation. Tamakkan expanded its focus to include leadership, innovation, intrapreneurship, and its talks covered everything from business and leadership strategy to digital transformation, smart cities, sustainability and multi-culturism.
Tamakkan had been holding seminars almost at a monthly frequency, but with the start of Covid moved from physical events to hybrid and virtual models. Tamakkan USA was launched in January 2021 and is headquartered in Seattle, Washington.
Over the years the platform has fostered considerable institutional and governmental goodwill attracting goodwill partnerships from entities such as the Fatima Bint Hazza Foundation, the US Embassy Abu Dhabi, AmCham Abu Dhabi, Mubadala GE, Aldar, Wollongong University, Boston University, New York University, The Sorbonne University, Franklin Covey Middle East, Covey Leadership Centre, Virgin Unite Mentors, New York University, Boston University, Wharton, Zayed University, INSEAD, Harvard Business Review, Sky News, the US Embassy Abu Dhabi, the US State Department, the Abu Dhabi Municipality, New York Film Academy, Mubadala GE, and others.
