SME RISE COLLECTIVE - Forty SMEs now supported in five weeks
The SME Rise Collective, a UAE-based initiative started in April this year, has now supported over forty SMEs in a space of five weeks. Initially set up by two SME PR and digital marketing agencies, TishTash and Fox and Hound Communications, the participating agencies now includes more than thirty licensed freelancers and independent agencies ranging from creative to SEO, full-service marketing, media buying and much more.
The UAE based initiative is aimed at supporting the SME community to enable recovery and economic growth across the region by offering marketing support to those brands that need it most. Since its inception the SME Rise Collective has been inundated with applications from SMEs for Support, but the remarkable thing about month two has been the growth of the Collective members.
This initiative, plus continued support from sponsors in the community and agencies and freelancers giving some additional spare time has in turn allowed the SME Rise Collective to allocate a significant number of new marketing packages.
Some of the newest SMEs supported and partnering agencies/freelancers include:
Posh Paws a Dubai kennels and cattery will be supported by Jansen Harris
Anavisio Data Solutions will be supported by Market Buzz
Pure European Chiropractic and Physiotherapy Centre is to be supported by Digitalina

All recipients will work with The SME Rise Collective for a three-month period to ensure a strong marketing activation plan, with lasting results.
The SME Rise Collective also relies on companies and individuals to sponsor packages and offer monetary support. Sponsoring a marketing package is incredibly easy, the Collective platform allows you to support for as little as 100 AED.
