Ajman Free Zone has signed an agreement with LinkedIn, which will see it benefit from an enhanced profile on the global business networking platform and enable targeted communications with key business sectors on a global scale. The move is part of Ajman Free Zone’s expansion strategy to attract more investor companies.
The potential reach is on a massive scale, with LinkedIn boasting 660 million members and 30 million companies world-wide. AFZ will be able to present itself as a thought leader across a variety of topics relevant to entrepreneurship, business set up and company acceleration, significantly bolstering its communications with potential global investors.
The agreement will also see Ajman Free Zone using the digital platform as a key tool for talent acquisition, demonstrating the work environment to millions of members, with the aim of attracting them to employment at The Free Zone.
The agreement signing took place at the LinkedIn offices in Dubai between H.E Fatma Salem, Acting General Manager of Ajman Free Zone for Ajman Free Zone and Mr. Ali Matar, head of LinkedIn MENA and EMEA Emerging Markets.
It comes in the wake of LinkedIn’s “Open for Business” feature which was launched recently in Dubai, and which is aimed at helping start-up companies and entrepreneurs by allowing them to list their services, making them discoverable from a LinkedIn search.
According to H.E Fatma Salem, Acting General Manager of Ajman Free Zone, “The agreement between ourselves and LinkedIn will help us to attract more investors to set up their business at AFZ. We will be heavily focused on communicating our proposition, of providing a thriving eco-system for business start-ups, that offers a range of support services, with innovation the central driver. This is another benchmark in the furthering of our innovative digital agenda, where we are collaborating with partners and stakeholders who can enhance and deliver our proposition.”
