Mindvalley, the world’s largest personal growth platform with over 60 million subscribers, will be hosting interactive, workshop-style sessions on their exclusive stage at SEF 2021, dedicated to distilling and spreading a radical new approach to entrepreneurship.

By partnering with Mindvalley for this exciting aspect of SEF 2021’s agenda, festival organiser Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center (Sheraa), is laying the foundations for imagining the Entrepreneur of the future – a new breed of thinkers, doers and change makers who will action change in the new world.

Announcing the partnership with Mindvalley, Najla Al Midfa, CEO of Sheraa, said: “The disruptions caused by the pandemic have accelerated the need for a new generation of holistic entrepreneurs who will foster innovation and ensure future sustainability through their impactful ideas and businesses that will add exponential value to societies worldwide. The entrepreneur of tomorrow is one who can marshal resources with speed, agility and resilience to empower and build a better future to benefit everyone.”

She added: “Through our partnership with Mindvalley, SEF 2021 will lead young and aspirational founders on this new and exciting age of entrepreneurship to ensure that transformative ideas and the dynamic process of vision and creation are embedded in the DNA of every ‘future entrepreneur’ here in Sharjah, and around the region.”

Vishen Lakhiani, founder of Mindvalley, said: “I’m so excited that this year the Mindvalley stage at SEF is focused on the ever-growing importance of Holistic entrepreneurship! We need to start shifting the mindset of entrepreneurs from working solely on the business to working on something that fulfills a purposeful life experience as well. Making them grow personally and create impact that leaves a legacy behind.”
