OPUS partners with Fiker Institute, launches in UAE 

by Madaline Dunn

OPUS, the opportunity community for business builders has launched in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and announced its partnership with Dubai-based think-tank. 

This partnership is aimed at promoting international action and intellectual discourse among the memberships of both organisations. 

Fiker Institute is an interdisciplinary think tank and research organisation based in Dubai, focused on, but not limited to, global governance, foreign policy, climate change, neo-colonialism and culture.

Together Fiker and OPUS will host a joint programme of events and experiences, bringing the UK and UAE’s leading business builders into important, collectively curated conversations.

Dubai Abulhoul, Founder & CEO of Fiker Institute, commented on the partnership: “Fiker Institute’s partnership with OPUS today represents not just a collaboration, but a shared vision to empower entrepreneurs as architects of change, steering us towards a collective future where global challenges are met with innovative and context-driven solutions, and where the power of business becomes a beacon for sustainable progress.”

On 24th April, OPUS and Fiker Institute co-hosted a launch event at Fiker Institute’s Library, celebrating the partnership and welcoming regional and global business leaders to the occasion. 

OPUS Board Member, Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice of York, addressed guests alongside Oliver Christian, British Consul General to Dubai and HM Trade Commissioner for the Middle East and Pakistan.

Commenting on the launch, HRH Princess Beatrice, who has supported OPUS since its inception in the UK said: “As the world continues to speed up, especially in the advent of new technologies, it is important to remember that relationships are at the core of any success story. Our mission to connect builders and unlock opportunity is right at the heart of that philosophy, and I believe the creation of a community of entrepreneurs who are keen to help each other will only further catalyse the UAE’s extraordinary story.”

OPUS Chair & Founder, Sam Tidswell-Norrish, said: “OPUS and I are deep believers in the power of partnership. The launch of OPUS with our friends at Fiker Institute is a testament to that, and our team is laser-focused on unlocking as much opportunity between our members as possible. The UAE is simply remarkable, and we are unwaveringly committed to playing our role in its progress as we seek to create the centre of gravity in the region for business builders, and we will work tirelessly on behalf of our members to earn that position.”
