CEO Message

Hesham Khalifa Al Qaizi- Chief Executive Officer

Knowledge and Education have never been as important to ensuring a society’s development as they are now. A knowledge driven economy is continuously being proven as the best foundation of any country. This is clearly reflected in the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum who is renowned for supporting educational initiatives across the Arab world and especially in Dubai.​

In keeping with his belief that Human Capital is the strongest asset of any nation, strategies adopted by Dubai highlight his drive to invest in its Human Capital as a form of ensuring long term sustainability.

With the vision of our leaders in our minds, we set forth to make Education in Dubai the best that it can possibly be. To further that goal, the Knowledge Fund was established in 2007 by a royal decree from HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum in order to take Dubai one step closer to reaching its dream of knowledge based economy.

The Knowledge Fund will strive to achieve that by effectively participating in developing Dubai’s knowledge capital. In order to do that, the Knowledge Fund will profitably manage funds using state of the art investment strategies. This will be accomplished through forming strategic partnerships better equipping it to invest in real-estate projects, commercial investment projects, and to manage investment portfolios. The Knowledge Fund will then use the generated profits to create and fund valuable educational initiatives across Dubai.

​We are proud in the Knowledge Fund to be part of Dubai’s road map leading into a knowledge based society. We gladly take on our mission with the simple, yet cherished goal of ensuring a better and brighter tomorrow for our children.
