About Seed Group

Founded in 2004 to realise the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Founded in 2004 to realise the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and ruler of Dubai, Seed Group stands to back global tech-driven enterprises looking to spread their wings, improve their solutions and embark on a high-growth trajectory.

The Al Maktoum Dynasty

Ruling Dubai since 1833

The Al Maktoum (Arabic: آلمكتوم‎ Āl Maktūm, House of Maktoum) family is the ruling royal family of the Emirate of Dubai, and one of the seven ruling families of the United Arab Emirates. The family is a branch of the Bani Yas clan (a lineage the family shares with the Al Nahyan dynasty of Abu Dhabi). The Al Maktoum family descends from the Al Bu Falasah (now known as Al-Falasi) section of the Bani Yas, a tribal federation that was the dominant power throughout most of what is now the United Arab Emirates.

A strategically positioned business launchpad

Seed Group acts as a springboard for new as well as established businesses and start-ups willing to expand their footprint in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and North Africa while enjoying the benefits of Dubai’s stable economy, favourable time zone, supportive government policies, a burgeoning business ecosystem, lucrative subsidies, and easy access to new markets.
