Business opportunities in Dubai are available on different levels for professionals and entrepreneurs in every field. There is a lot of space in Dubai mainland to set up a business of almost any type. But if you want to retain 100% shares of your company (an Emirati sponsor will hold 51% shares of a foreign company in Dubai mainland) then there is no shortage of free zone areas in the city.
There are around 45 free trade zone areas in the UAE and more than half of such free zones are present in Dubai alone. Most of these free zones allow specific types of business opportunity and mostly they are named according to the business opportunity they provide. One such specific free zone in Dubai is the Dubai Design District (d3).
Dubai Design District started its operations in 2013 in order to cater to the needs of design community. With the passage of time, this exclusive free zone is getting popularity. It is the reason that the number of businesses in d3 is increasing continuously. Currently, several local and international luxury and fashion brands have setup their businesses in d3.
