TECOM Investments
Dubai - WAM

TECOM Investments, a member of Dubai Holding and operator of Dubai's leading industry-focused business communities, has announced 2014 as a record year for growth.

Over the year, TECOM Investments welcomed more than 800 new business partners and enabled 380 expansions across its 11 business communities. The positive performance brings the total number of businesses operating to more than 4,650, supporting a workforce of 74,000 across its six industry sectors of ICT, Media, Education, Science, Industry, and Design, Fashion, Art & Luxury.

Customer loyalty remains high with TECOM reporting high retention rates of 95 per cent across its business communities. Over 30 per cent of its business partners have been located within TECOM's communities for a decade or more, and occupancy across Dubai Internet City (DIC), Dubai Media City (DMC) and Dubai Knowledge Village (DKV) remains high at 95 per cent, demonstrating the popularity of these areas.

TECOM Investments announced an investment of Dh 4.5 billion as part of its alignment with Dubai's National Innovation Strategy. This investment amount will fund the creation of Dubai Internet City's Innovation Hub, which will provide 1.6 million sq. ft. of dedicated space to 15,000 knowledge workers, and Dubai Design District's pioneering Creative Community, which will provide a dynamic destination covering 1 million sq. ft. for emerging designers, artists, and other creative workers.

In direct response to its growing communities and increased market demand, TECOM Investments announced new developments and the delivery of key projects in 2014, including: The Butterfly, a two tower development located in the heart of Dubai Media City; the DuBiotech Headquarter Building, which comprises commercial space and retail units; and, the Publishing Pavilion and Makateb in International Media Production Zone (IMPZ).

As part of its commitment to deliver sustainable, holistic communities, TECOM launched Villa Lantana, a 440-villa residential community located in Al Barsha. Sales for the first phase have been robust and ahead of target, adding significant value to TECOM's portfolio.

TECOM Investments is at the forefront of the Government's new visions, strategies and plans to promote sustainability, cement Dubai's position as a Smart City, and strengthen its position as a global capital of the Islamic Economy.

This has been demonstrated by the appointment of Dubai Design District (d3) as the official greenfield development site for Dubai's Smart City initiatives, the launch of a dedicated ‘Halal Cluster' in Dubai Industrial City, and partnerships with Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) to provide electric vehicle charging infrastructure, smart meters and grids.

Commenting, Dr Amina Al Rustamani, Group CEO of TECOM Investments said: "Our pioneering communities continue to attract new business partners and facilitate expansions, as demonstrated by our strong annual results. Over the course of the year, we introduced several enhancements to our services for the benefit of our business partners, with a view to making running their businesses easier and more efficient. We also implemented a series of exciting new developments and initiatives that will support future growth and help to drive Dubai's transition into an innovation-led economy.

"Over the next ten years, we will increase the workforce located in our communities from 74,000 to 100,000, grow our business partner base to 10,000 companies, and provide an additional 10 million sq. ft. of office space, resulting in a total of 16 million sq. ft. of dedicated space across Dubai's prime business locations."

Through its new strategy announced at an event to mark Dubai Internet City's 15th anniversary in October 2014, TECOM Investments will contribute to Dubai's transition to a Global Innovation Hub. This strategy includes a renewed focus on developing smart, sustainable infrastructure; making doing business easier; attracting talent and investing in human capital; supporting start-ups; fostering dynamic industry ecosystems, and activating a vibrant community.

Significant improvements to enhance the overall experience of TECOM Investments' business communities were also announced as part of this new strategy, including wellness facilities such as running tracks, bike paths and clean transportation technologies across Dubai Internet City, Dubai Media City and Dubai Knowledge Village, the introduction of incubators, similar to Dubai Internet City's in5 innovation centre across all sectors, and support for small businesses and start-ups from across the region.
