Who Are We?

e25 is an initiative envisioned and driven by Emaar’s Chairman, Mr. Mohammed Alabbar. It is a visionary, unique program, and the world has seen nothing like it before!

With the rise of technology and the ever-changing business landscape, Emaar recognized that there is a need to adapt . How can Emaar stay relevant in the face of such cutting edge disruptions?

Here’s where we come in. 25 young people like us were endowed with the autonomy to pursue our passions and our goal is to establish and manage multiple ventures that shape the future of Emaar. We come from all over the world. Our aspirations are limitless - they range from solving global problems like climate change, to changing the way physical structures are constructed.

We want to make life frictionless, create positive social impact and make a radical difference to Dubai and the world. We’ve got an opportunity of a lifetime, and our scope has no limit.

We have defined what e25 is. We’ve made our own rules. If you join us, you can be part of this revolution. We don’t abide by uniform. We don’t abide by conventions. We don’t accept the status quo.


We #MakeThingsHappen
Join us in making the world an easier, better, and happier place to live in!


Just some insight on some of the stuff we are looking at within our team at e25.

About e25


What is e25 and how is it related to Emaar?

e25 is an innovation platform established by Emaar with the goal of creating multiple startups integrated into Emaar that would shape its future. The e25 partners report to the Innovation and Business Improvement team. Think of yourself as an entrepreneur and Emaar as the VC fund.


What does an e25 partner do?

An e25 partner is like a startup founder. Their role is to come up with a different way of doing business and implement it. From idea generation to execution, an e25 partner does it all.


What are some of the current projects that e25 is working on? Do I work on my existing idea or on a new one? Do I work individually?

We are working on ideas across real estate, sustainability, investments, e-commerce, construction among many others. If you believe your idea is worth pursuing, you will get a chance to develop it further if Emaar is on board. You can also work on a new idea or join a team already working on an idea. Typically you would not be working alone but there are no rules on team size.

Application Process


Is there any age limit for applying? How many times can I apply?

Yes, you should be 25 years old or younger at the time of applying. You can only apply once to the e25 program.


What is the application process like? What am I being evaluated on in an interview?

Typically, you go through 3 rounds of interviews. The 1st round is with 2 partners from e25, the second and third are with senior managers and directors from the Innovation team at Emaar. You are evaluated on the basis of your personality, business acumen and intelligence. You need to be a team player and someone who thrives under uncertainty.


How should I present my business idea? When should I present it?

You are required to submit a brief summary of your business idea along with the application. Please limit this to 1000 words.

Next, you will be presenting your business idea in greater detail during the interview in the form of a presentation.



Are you taking interns?

Unfortunately, we do not accept internship applications at the moment.


How long till I hear back from you? What if I don’t receive one?

We typically check your application within a week of submission and you will hear back on the status of your application within a week of the interview. If you don’t receive one, be assured that your application has been considered and the absence of call is not a reflection on your credentials and passion.


Are you looking for any specific background? (a.k.a. Do I need to know how to build a tower?)

We are open to all educational backgrounds - Engineering, Medicine, Business, Maths, Arts, Science, Psychology, Languages among many others. If you are under 25, smart, fun, have a flair for business and are passionate about changing the world - you have a shot at being e25 partner.
