The company was established by Ali Al Kayed and Saif Al Tunaiji, both 26-year-old Emiratis with a vision for unusual and dynamic advertising channels.
Al Kayed and Al Tunaiji founded One Connection Media in September 2006, using their own capital and with the support of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Establishment for Young Business Leaders.
From its early days of providing innovative services, One Connection has expanded to nine staff, with a portfolio of cost-effective marketing products. As the company’s CEO, Al Kayed develops the company’s strategy, manages the financing and oversees the operations.
Receiving the award on April 22, Al Kayed praised the establishment for supporting entrepreneurship in the UAE and helping businesses overcome the obstacles they face in the start-up phase.
“One Connection has been a member of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Establishment for Young Business Leaders since day one and their support helped my business become self-reliant and develop small and medium projects.”
Today, One Connection has a range of products including its street marketing media, Nomadic Media by Pixman, and its website – www.oneconnection.ae – displays its innovative use of technology.
The Mohammed Bin Rashid Establishment for Young Business Leaders was created in 2002 to nurture the entrepreneurial spirit in Dubai, encourage and facilitate the development of business and entrepreneurial activity among UAE nationals and catalyse the development and growth of a key sector of the economy, the small and medium business sector. To date, it has 700 members.
The annual awards celebrate excellence among local and Arab entrepreneurs. This year, a total of 21 awards, including eight in special categories, were presented.
