Co-working

I am not member of a family business, can I still come and work?
The Tharawat Space is specifically for the family business community. However, as we want to encourage the exchange between family businesses and entrepreneurs, we offer a certain amount of Tharawat Space Passes to entrepreneurs. If you are an entrepreneur and interested in a co-working place, apply here and become a 'Visiting Entrepreneur'!

We also recommand all non-family startups, to look at all the great co-working spaces you can go to in Dubai, such as:

- Impact Hub Dubai
- Astrolabs
- the bureau dubai and The Co-Working Cafe
- The cribb
- InFive and The Assembly
- Make Business Hub

Yes you can! If you are based in or often travel to Dubai you are more than welcome to get a Tharawat Space Pass and joint the community. See our Pass options!

Yes, if you have a Tharawat Space Pass or are a Member of the Tharawat Family Business Forum, we welcome reasonable use of the Space for business meetings. Please note that your business partners cannot work from the Space after your meeting ends.
