As we approach the 50th Anniversary of the UAE, we pledge US$1 million in free advertising and marketing support to assist 20 UAE-SMEs.

Yes, that’s US$1 million

We are celebrating the UAE’s success by helping others achieve their business goals. This support is unconditional - it is not linked to any form of equity or future business commitment.

Times are tough and as the world grapples with the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, we at Motivate Media Group understand the challenges that this poses for small and medium enterprises. As the region’s leading content producer, we want to help and support SMEs during what we are calling the revival period.

If you’re a homegrown UAE company, you can apply today for US$50,000 in free cross-platform support, together with advice on how to deliver an engaging, multi-media marketing campaign.
