Success From an Early Age
As a teenager living in Kuwait, Ahmed Dahab was a very successful student and achieved high grades in college. At the age of 19, he set up his first business buying, assembling, and selling computer parts; three years later, he expanded this business to start selling electronics as well as computers, similar in both concept and size to Currys and PC World.
In the interim, he continued to pursue his further education at the Arab University (affiliated with the University of London) and completed his degree in Economics.
He later ventured into other businesses which proved to be extraordinarily successful. This earned him the respect of his backers, who eventually became investors in his other business ventures.
Entering the Real Estate Market
Ahmed Dahab then entered the Dubai real estate market, where his companies Star Neighbourhood and Expert Neighbourhood undertook and successfully completed high-end, large-scale residential and commercial projects such as Sustainable Villas, Jumeirah One, and Jumeirah Two in the UAE. At the same time, he expanded his business to another booming property market: Turkey.
He started to buy land along the Aegean cost of Turkey, adjacent to the Greek coast, where he could apply his vision of high ROI for his investors. The land in southwest Turkey was good value for money; the steel, the concrete and the labour were local; and the tourism industry was booming.
In 2014, his mega-projects in Turkey – Neighbourhood City and Neighbourhood Residence – were launched, with a combined total value of 169 million KWD ($559 million dollars).
Neighbourhood City, which was developed by his real estate development and management company Right Brain, consists of 60 blocks of towers built on a vacant lot. Most of the buildings had 10 floors with four flats each, while the rest of them had 15 floors. The 60 blocks contained 2,500 two-bedroom apartments. There was also an extra piece of land inside the project where 20 more buildings could be built.
Combined with Neighbourhood Residence, also developed by Right Brain, both projects consist of around 3,360 apartments, including a deluxe spa hotel. This five-star hotel is near completion and is expected to be operational in the summer of 2022. Another five-star hotel will be built in Istanbul, Turkey and this project will commence in 2023.
Dahab's Mega Project
To promote the mega project, the company signed a contract with the number one football star in the world – Cristiano Ronaldo – to be its media face. The footballer cost the company £2 million pounds, but it was money well-spent as the media campaign earned the company £60 million pounds in the first four months alone.
The deal was brave, magnificent, and risky, but once again – thanks to a successful advertising project, and with a new marketing strategy – Ahmed Dahab achieved a massive success.
He later ventured into other businesses which proved to be extraordinarily successful. This earned him respect from his backers, who eventually became investors in his other business ventures. By 2011, the success of his various enterprises elevated his status to the magical millionaire’s club. As his business success continued to flow, he now had the opportunity to move in amongst the country’s elite social circles – the political fraternity and the ruling class – where he made many loyal friends.
We all know that the GDP of a nation is based on the total value of goods and services produced/moved during a given period, and that if this production and movement ceased, then businesses and the economy would go into recession.
The total global economic output is specific and fixed, and what’s happening is that times are always changing and that the growth of countries and the rise of a surplus trade balance is necessarily followed by a deficit in the trade balance of other countries.
But if that is the case, then the total global economy would have been the same for thousands of years; this is contrary to the reality and truth. There is an increase in the long-term global GDP that can cope with the permanent population growth in the world; it is a cause and a consequence for it. And it is also asserted by the saying of Allah almighty; (And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, we are [its] expander).
There is new wealth created over time that can cope with the population and economic growth that necessitate covering the living needs of food, housing, goods, services, basic and job opportunities.
So how is this new wealth created?
The answer is simple; Innovation.
Only Innovation can create new wealth and add real value to the world economy, and also give the opportunities to those who wish to establish and compete in markets which are increasingly and unfairly being protected by those who already own the largest slice of the pie.
