OWS Capital (OWSC), a multi-investment platform with headquarters in Dubai, UAE, is proud to announce its advisory board members, American motivational speaker, entrepreneur and New York Times best-selling author, Chris Gardner and His Excellency Marwan Obaid Almheiri, a member of the UAE Federal National Council and the Assistant Secretary General for Executive Affairs at the Executive Council of the Emirate of Ajman.

Several of OWSC’s core pillars include facilitating global talent business representation and management to the MENA region, international brand consultancy services and development as well as launching original IP events and festival operations with a focus on arts, culture, entertainment and technology.

As an advisory board member for OWSC, Gardner, who is world-renowned for his autobiography-turned-Hollywood-hit, Pursuit of Happyness, will leverage his existing network to facilitate new business ventures for the company with special emphasis in GCC countries. In addition to lending his experience to develop new businesses, he will also advise on global trends.

With a background in business consultancy and as a member of Zorah Development Company, Almheiri’s critical and analytical approach will greatly benefit the growth of OWSC. From advising on cultural engagements to business expansion in the region, Almheiri will play a vital role as an advisory board member of OWS Capital.
