01Gov (the name was inspired by PayPal entrepreneur Peter Thiel’s book, Zero to One book) is a Dubai-born startup that strives to inspire leaders and servants of the public sector across the Arab region and the wider Global South, and to enable them with the necessary skills, knowledge, attitude and tools to break into the 21st century.
Our slogan is “Future Now”. This is our big idea, our inspiring dream, and our audacious promise. Our bold story has enabled ongoing conversations with public leaders and servants at all levels, from members of royal families to employees at “Happiness Centers” (i.e. service centers).
And we have successfully translated this slogan into a wide range of training programs and ideation projects that are delivered digitally and in the physical innovation labs. This hybrid business model brings together the power and scalability of the digital platform with the depth and warmth of human face to face conversations.
