Founder, Share this Space and the Co-working Popup
One of the pioneers of co-working in the region, Shahzad Bhatti founded The Co-Working Popup, the first private mainland incubator approved by the Dubai government, and Share This Space, a booking platform for short-term rental spaces.
Shahzad moved to Dubai from the UK in 2009 to work in real estate. Thinking of ways to make the process of setting up a business affordable and adaptable, in 2011, he launched a business centre concept that evolved into two flagship ventures, The Co-Working Popup and Share This Space. A firm believer in a collaborative and community-focused approach to growth, Shahzad has always created platforms at events such as London Fashion Week to showcase new Dubai-based brands.
HIS ETHOS: “We grow faster together than on our own. It’s so important that we have a strong community working together and supporting each other in a real manner.”
