Indian Expats in Dubai was created in Jan 2020 to support the Indian community within Dubai and the rest of the UAE. Anul Mundra
The community established with the purpose of offering a platform which becomes a one stop shop solution for all the engagement, needs and requirements of Indian expats in the UAE. Once the community had a decent shape, it was converted into a business platform with a motto of supporting businesses through advertising and marketing. Indian Expats in Dubai (IED) also conducts events with the motto of unifying the community of Indians residing in the UAE. The community has been growing exponentially ever since its launch and proactive, engaged, commercialized and has a strategical approach. As a founder of IED, I curate and create its activities and moderate communication among its members.
Indian Expats in Dubai is about to complete its three years soon. It has come a long way. I take pride in the way it has evolved and sustained itself. I believe it is essential for a social community to feed on activities that rely on consistency, hard work, passion, creativity and patience. These work really well.
What does not work is something I never want to discover (laughs).
I have enjoyed every bit of this journey. I believe, Consistency and passion for society with a motto of business vision has kept it going. Support of my family has counted big. The fact that this community is a ray of hope that we are all connected to something larger than life, something that keeps us together as a nation. This hope has kept it going on and one. This platform is a source of support – be it entertainment or serious business work. Its usefulness remains unmatched.
My own journey as the founder of Indian Expats in Dubai is very exciting. I am an engineer and an ex-banker by profession. A few years back, I would never have thought that social media could ever play any role in setting off a new career stream for me. Now when I look back, the achievements thrill me. It is exciting to see the way IED has grown over limited period of time and the impact its activities has created is commendable. I advise the readers to always keep eyes open and never under estimate personal capabilities. I am a true example of that and you can be one too.
There are so many other Facebook or WhatsApp groups that have been created, but I can see the lack of focus and mission with these. I have relied on twelve years of corporate experience to run this very professionally and the structure of the community has been highly sustainable. I strongly believe, the operational structure of IED is a differentiator.
I currently wish to expand Indian Expats in Dubai and encourage members to multiply in numbers. On another note, I am planning on starting multiple wings to make this community more accessible and relatable to people.
My strength is my family, IED team, my followers who are always there to support. In Future, I want to cater to every Indian in Dubai so that any new expat here could feel comfortable because Indian Expats in Dubai is there to see to all of their needs, requirements and engagements.
We woman are blessed to be very good at multitasking and we need to take out time for ourselves. We have many roles to play and we can play them very well. We must understand that we can be totally independent, should we choose to be that. We do not need to be dependent on anyone for anything. IED really motivates and supports women who want to take their first step to launch a career of a small business. We are 100% entrepreneurship friendly and supportive.
Community supports, it provides out reach! Every woman entrepreneur needs a community where she is known, recognized, referred and supported. It will help in sustaining business and growing it.
Indian Expats in Dubai has one simple long term goal – to be one stop shop solution for any Indian expat living in Dubai and the UAE catering to engaging them constructively, supporting their businesses and helping them as a social community. Simple goal has a simple plan: focus, consistency and hard-work.
We are very careful in ensuring the safety of the community. We validate and verify recommendations. Profiles of all applicants are reviewed before approval for community membership. We are an equal opportunity group and every business that gets support from Indian Expats in Dubai has to undergo due diligence and checks for legal practices.
It has been inspired by various Facebook groups and communities but it was more about finding the market gap, addressing the cause and then running this community with the right mission and vision.
I have started the path of taking Indian expats in dubai to global channels and post 5 years, I expect a bigger, nicer, expanded community.
This has been an overwhelming experience. We have a joke at home that IED is my second baby (laughs, I mean it though). Before covid no one could imagine IED becoming so big or doing so much so there is a sense of satisfaction but having said that, I am aware and I am conscious to keep my creativity and my efforts always ongoing.
Dream big Act Bigger. Fly high and work towards your dreams and goals.
