Hussain Sajwani, DAMAC Owner: The Emirati Entrepreneur

The American dream is the concept that if a person works extremely hard they can have anything they want in life and that it’s just a matter of time. It doesn’t matter what color, race, religion, or creed a person is if the work is done then they will get their heart’s desire. This dream should be protected by the government. We’ll apparently these concepts isn’t just present in America as there are several cases of people from other places personifying this belief and becoming huge successful entities. A primary example of this is the entrepreneur Hussain Sajwani.

Hussain Sajwani is an Emirati entrepreneur who is the founder and the chairman of DAMAC group. This company is of the real estate variety and specializes in commercial and leisure and sometimes residential properties in the Middle East and Dubai. Though not American, Hussain’s story is reminiscent of the American Dream concept. Hussain was born in 1954 to a hardworking father who owned his own business. His father’s endless work days kept him from being a part of the family like he wanted to and this along with other business struggles made Hussain not want to follow his father’s footsteps. Hussain was intelligent from an earlier age and received a government scholarship to go to school. Though his father wanted him to take over the family business Hussain went to school instead and pursued a medical degree, but Hussain never finished. He had a change of heart and decided to go into real estate and so started his own company DAMAC group.

Hussain noticed that tourist and other foreigners were very interested I owning property in beautiful Dubai and so started his business there with the help of a government law. From that time on young Hussain started selling units to the foreigners. Now years later DAMAC is a huge success. In recent years Hussan Sajwani has worked with Donald trump on his Golf course as well as golfing legend Tiger Woods on his. In 2013 his company actually registered on the London stock exchange! Now that he is a huge success Hussain is able to give back and does so to the poor children of Dubai. Hussain Sajwani is a personification of seeking your own way and finding success. He is truly a story of success from humble beginnings.
