The “gift that keeps giving”

Dubai, UAE: Damacorp, the elite investment advisory and residence boutique based in Dubai, will create an NFT from a painting auctioned in a night of hope and inspiration at The Global Gift Gala Abu Dhabi Dream Ball. The gala was held on December 9th under the patronage of H.E. Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan, UAE Cabinet Member and Minister of Tolerance and Coexistence. The prestigious event was cochaired by Global Gift Foundation Founder Maria Bravo, with co-hosts including Abu Dhabi Dream Ball Founders Nadine Maalouf and Nadia Sehweil, Global Gift Ambassadors Huda and Mona Kattan, and Honorary Chair, actress, activist and philanthropist, Eva Longoria.

The event, which took place at the incredible W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island, brought together nearly 300 guests, who enjoyed performances by international pop star Anastacia, soprano Angélica de la Riva, and international Flamenco group Gipsy Reyes Heritage.

Among the exclusive auction items Sacha Jafri painted an exclusive and extraordinary Art piece live during the event Entitled: “Abu Dhabi Grand Prix – A celebration of the Race to the Finish”. The Founder and CEO of Damacorp Alexandre de Damas, won the bid. In a generous act, the “gift of giving”, Damacorp will create an NFT of the Art Piece in order to raise the maximum possible funds, benefiting the Global Gift Foundation.

Maria Bravo stated: “Alexandre de Damas has a great commitment to society. His aim is to create a legacy of compassion, love, and solidarity, believing that the success of every entrepreneur would not be legitimate without these values​. We are very grateful to him, Damacorp and Sacha Jafri, for the involvement with Global Gift Foundation. We appreciate their generous commitment and I feel very positive that Damacorp and Sacha Jafri, will bring significant change by supporting our charitable projects, helping the most vulnerable.”

Alexandre de Damas said: “I was blessed to be born in a family where there is a strong history of entrepreneurial success and business acumen, as well as ancient royal roots to many European dynasties where the noble values of generosity and respect for the others have always been very present. I am very focused and sharp when it comes to business and expanding our companies, but I never forget that not everybody has this luck and hence feel a strong obligation to give back to society and the less fortunate, to hopefully encourage more people in the same path of hard work, ambition and dedication to one’s mission.”

Damacorp focuses on two fundamental pillars: ultra-high-net-worth private clients; and government advisory. It provides its clients with access to multiple citizenship and residency programs around the world, including Caribbean countries and the European Union. It also advises governments on how to design and implement successful investment programs.

Founded by a member of a prominent European noble and royal house, Alexandre de Damas, Damacorp is managed in consortium with former government officials, experts from the tech and investment fields and a sophisticated board of advisors.

As the first firm in the industry to incorporate artificial Intelligence into the full customer journey, and an exclusive members portal for their likeminded and trusted individuals to connect, Damacorp aims to provide not only the residence/passport required by clients but also to guide them in their future journeys as global investors by introducing them to a new world of similarly successful individuals to generate new investment synergies.

The main objective of Damacorp is to transform with an innovative tech the way current citizenship and residency applications are executed and looks forward to digitalizing the industry, opening the world, and making a positive and lasting impact on society and history.
