Starbucks Co-Founder Zev Siegl Joins Judging Panel Of Gulf Capital SME Awards
(3 August 2014)


Starbucks Co-Founder Zev Siegl has joined the judging panel to determine the winners of this year’s Gulf Capital SME Awards.

Along with other highly-respected business gurus and successful entrepreneurs in the UAE, Siegl will evaluate SME entrants in various categories, including Gulf Capital Business of the Year, MasterCard Small Business of the Year, RSA Start-up Business of the Year, Emirati Business of the Year, Online Business of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Business Leader of the Year, Sustainable Business of the Year, Customer Focus of the Year, Business Innovation of the Year, and People and Culture of the Year. 

“It has always been my passion to inspire and encourage aspiring entrepreneurs. Starting a business is challenging so I have made it my life’s mission to share whatever experiences and insights I have learned in helping establish Starbucks many years ago, along with other start-up companies since then. Being a part of the Gulf Capital SME Awards gives me a unique opportunity to study how UAE entrepreneurs started their businesses and how they overcame challenges to succeed. The valuable insights gained from serving as a judge for the Awards will improve my ability to help other groups of entrepreneurs with whom I interact at various speaking engagements,” said Siegl, who is also a highly sought-after speaker in international entrepreneurship conferences and events.

Dr. Karim El Solh, Chief Executive Officer of Gulf Capital, one of the leading alternative investment firms in the Middle East and headline sponsor of the Gulf Capital SME Awards, welcomed Siegl to the judging panel and said: “Siegl is a fantastic addition to the esteemed panel of judges. His wealth of experience and expertise will be of great help and inspiration to the aspiring entrepreneurs participating in this event. His interaction with the shortlisted SMEs and unique contribution to this competition will ensure that this is one of the most exciting Gulf Capital SME awards to date.” 

Now in its third year, the Gulf Capital SME Awards, organised by MEED, has been honouring outstanding small businesses and individual entrepreneurs, putting the spotlight on success, innovation and growth in the SME sector, which has been a key contributor to the UAE’s annual GDP and a main provider of employment for Emiratis and expatriates.
