The Abu Dhabi Investment Office has launched offices in eight different cities, as it looks to enable more international investment opportunities for startups in the emirate’s bustling ecosystem.
As part of ongoing efforts to cement Abu Dhabi as one of the most advanced and eclectic ecosystems in the region, the Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO) has announced that it has launched no less than eight new offices across the world.
In establishing footholds in New York, San Francisco, Frankfurt, London, Paris, Beijing, Seoul and Tel Aviv, ADIO hopes its network expansion will further its goals of enabling opportunities for domestic and foreign investors that are aligned with Abu Dhabi’s economic priorities.
“The representative offices will serve as a bridge between key international markets and the exciting opportunities in some of our economy’s highest potential areas, opening up new areas of cooperation between the domestic private sector and its international counterparts,” said, chairman of ADIO, Mohammed Ali Al Shorafa, adding that the new offices will "leverage local capabilities in a global market" and that “International start-ups and businesses will find it easier than ever to access the full range of support that ADIO provides, including its investor care services and incentives.”
The 2020 edition of the World Bank’s ‘Ease of Doing Business Subnational Report’ ranked Abu Dhabi 12th globally, further highlighting it as a leading investment destination in MENA and the world.
