What inspired you to start your company or become an industry leader?
One of the key reasons I started MSZ Corporate Services is to provide quality services at affordable prices. I see a significant gap; the top 10 consulting firms are not affordable for SMEs, and then you have low-quality small firms that lack specialization. At MSZ, we provide quality advisory services within a budget. My inspiration for starting my own business is my entrepreneurial spirit. Additionally, there are successful individuals whom I have admired throughout my lifetime. I am motivated by the notion that each day is a new opportunity, especially when you’re building a business. As we celebrate our 6th year, the future appears very promising.

While the UAE is home to a massive number of corporate business consultancy firms, not every company comprehends the diverse intricacies involved in the process, thereby slowing down the business incorporation process. MSZ Corporate Services is one company that has successfully navigated all the local regulatory compliances and caters to clients’ every requirement.
Based in Dubai, MSZ was founded in 2013 by Mohammed Sultan Zubair (Managing Director) with a vision to assist entrepreneurs and organizations in setting up their business operations in the UAE.

What is the mission and vision of your company? How do you ensure that these principles are embedded throughout your organization?
My vision is to be an honest, empathetic, and impactful project leader, recognized internationally within my industry.

From being a one-person team during inception, MSZ has now evolved into an 18-member team comprising business consultants, company secretaries, and MBS graduates.

The company’s growth since its inception has been exponential, leading to diversification into two distinct verticals: MSZ HR Consultancy and MSZ e-Commerce. These divisions cater to their respective areas of operations.
What was a pivotal decision or risk you took that impacted your career or company?
I used to work for a consulting firm where I was an exceptional team player. I received numerous awards and recognitions during my employment. The training I received was instrumental in helping me understand business ethics and ultimately led me to the decision to start my own venture.
