BusinessBid: L to R: Sam Mohamed and Salman Quraishi
Two successful UAE based technology professionals, Sam Mohamed and Salman Quraishi, decided to pursue this challenge and BusinessBid.ae was born. It was actually born out of a genuine need during Salman’s wedding; where he was trying tirelessly to look for quality vendors at fair prices. Leading on from that need Salman and Sam teamed up to provide a solution. Coming from technology management careers, they co-founded BusinessBid after experiencing a gap in UAE’s service marketplace when trying to find reliable and competitively priced vendors for their domestic service & wedding needs respectively.
“We wanted to bring value through our technology expertise & experience to UAE, a country we have deeply loved and formed a living relationship with”, opines Salman who has years of experience working with several financial institutions and multinational banks.

“We are keen to disrupt the current local service market place by innovating & bringing new services, to improve how people hire local service professionals in the UAE. Technology is a big driver. You need real services and great people behind that technology to create something truly great” says Sam. Recently relocated from Melbourne, Australia, Sam holds a post-graduate degree in technology and understands the impact and relevance, technology has made in professional and personal lives.
