British-Thai business mogul, serial entrepreneur and a member of the Thai Royal family Tim Connor (Jayankura Na Ayudhya), who is currently running businesses in the Entertainment Industry while spearheading investments across Asia, eyes Dubai as his next investment destination as he continues to expand his business portfolio in the Middle East.
“The UAE has always been on my radar – it is one of the safest places to live and invest in.” says Tim Connor, investor and serial entrepreneur. “Ranking ninth in the top 10 most competitive countries in the world by IMD’s WCY 2021 (International Institute for Management Development – World Competitiveness Yearbook) and 1st at the Arab region in the general index of the World Happiness Report 2020, says a lot about the UAE’s solid economy and favorable business environment.” He added.
Tim started his first business at a very young age of 9 building and fixing computers long before everyone had apple support. Today his investments span 9 countries across the entertainment, hospitality, health and wellness, F&B , real estate and beauty sector.
With plans of business growth and expansion next year, Tim and his business partner and TV personality Maggie Wilson are set to launch an interior design studio and a concept beauty lab aimed neutrally across genders in Dubai in 2022 with further plans for luxury hotels in 2023. Tim also recently invested in the IT sector creating mobile and gaming apps as well as in the events industry tapping into concerts and celebrity artists.
“Passion has always been the driver for me. I am extremely grateful to be able to work alongside UAE partners who are on the same wavelength, and I am very excited to be launching three new concepts in the Middle East. There’s so much more to look forward to as I continue to look for new fresh ideas from young entrepreneurs to work with and invest in.” He added.
