- Will a local sponsor help with my business?
If you’re looking for someone to help run your business, this isn’t what a local sponsor does. A local sponsor provides the service of letting a foreign entrepreneur run businesses in the UAE Mainland and act as a local representative for the business, but they aren’t usually involved in the day-to-day operations.
- A high-profile sponsor isn’t always the best choice.
There are many high-profile people and celebrities that offer sponsorship, but you could end up paying a big price for the same service you could get somewhere else.
- What can go wrong with a local sponsorship?
In some rare cases, things can get messy if an individual sponsor dies and their heirs aren’t interested in being a sponsor. You can help prevent this by going with a corporate sponsor rather than an individual.
