About Me

Ammar Akhtar

award-winning entrepreneur, keynote speaker and mentor

Founder and CEO of UAE's largest car rental platform Finalrentals.com, I am a full-time entrepreneur since 2005. In this small career of 15 years I have experienced many highs and lows in business. From my experience I have learned that one of the most common mistakes startups make is doing simple things in the most complicated manner. I want to help people keep it simple.

Entrepreneurship is a journey full of surprises, hardships, struggle and test of your grit and resilience. I can tell you it will never be easy. In the beginning you struggle for some traction and then as you grow there are struggles to achieve scalabilty. When your business expands further your struggle is defined by sustaining growth and thinking what's next.

In a nutshell being an entrepreneur is a constant hustle - a very exciting one and I want to help people with passion and purpose accomplish their entrepreneurial dreams.
