Telr and CREATIVE ZONE Enter a Strategic Partnership to Boost Online Businesses
Telr, the region’s leading online payment gateway, has announced its partnership with CREATIVE ZONE, Dubai's largest and most trusted business setup advisory firm. The partnership creates an ecosystem for CREATIVE ZONE's clients to easily enter the market with a comprehensive one-stop shop for all their setup needs, from business registration to premises and now, through Telr, the addition of a payment gateway.
CREATIVE ZONE is known for bringing the dreams of aspiring entrepreneurs and SMEs to life, and this association with Telr will allow its clientele to obtain access, with a single integration, to a feature-rich payment gateway. Telr’s clients will, in turn, be able to access CREATIVE ZONE’s ecosystem of business and financial services, such as tax and accounting and sales pipelines. Boasting a client-base of over 12,000 companies since its inception in 2010, CREATIVE ZONE is a natural partner for Telr in its quest to offer a one-stop ecosystem to companies looking to enter the country’s burgeoning e-commerce space.
Speaking about the partnership, Sirish Kumar, co-founder, and CEO of Telr said: “At Telr, we have enabled SMEs and start-ups to become large enterprises in sectors like the sharing economy and ride-hailing, and we understand the unique challenges companies face when they take their businesses online in the UAE. With our partnership with CREATIVE ZONE, we hope to create unified services for start-ups, SMEs and international entrants to the market, to further enhance and address their needs, and to ease some of the challenges faced by them while growing their presence online.”

Jigar Sagar, Group GM of CREATIVE ZONE said: “CREATIVE ZONE has evolved from providing business setup services to a complete end-to-end business support eco-system. We have worked extremely hard to cultivate strategic partnerships and introduce services that will help our clients grow their businesses. When a budding entrepreneur wants to start their business in the UAE, we are with them each step of the way, celebrating each milestone - from the issuance of their trade license to scaling up their business. Telr is a perfect fit for what we are aiming to achieve now and well into the future.”
The e-commerce sector is a strategic focus within the UAE, and the country’s drive to digitization, coupled with evolving consumer preferences, is generating significant growth in the sector from both domestic businesses, and increasingly, international companies moving into the market. Creating an ecosystem that facilitates the launch and growth of online businesses in the UAE further enhances the potential of the sector to deliver on its great promise.
