You can learn more about Mr. Mario Radosavljevic, a serial entrepreneur, through our interview below and 10 Questions we asked him.
Explain the background of you and the company in detail.
Global Partners Portal L.L.C. is a group of entrepreneurs and specialists based in Dubai, UAE, who have created a platform for small and medium-sized European companies. We help you export your products or services to the UAE without any advertising cost using our AI-Algorithm program.
Think of how Amazon offers products to their customers; we do the same by introducing and connecting European entrepreneurs with Dubai and UAE companies in the Middle East.
Founder and CEO of Global Partners Portal LLC, I am a Business Advisor and Facilitator for His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Faisal Al Qassimi’s Royal Private Office within the Gulf Cooperation Council (“GCC” Gulf Cooperation Council). This collaboration will provide access to cross-border collaborations for individuals and companies wishing to engage in both markets.
I moved from Monte Carlo, Monaco, to Dubai in 2022 to build the biggest Entrepreneur platform worldwide.
What are your goals?
My goal is to show small business owners how to open a 2nd income stream and bring their company to the next level. The pandemic and the war in Ukraine created so much suffering for the Western markets that everyone is just focused on the big players and forgets that the SME businesses are the backbone of each economy.
What do you feel is the biggest strength of yourself/company right now?
My biggest strength is, bringing over 14-years of Serial-Entrepreneurship to the table in manufacturing and online sales. I have been active as a private investor in Monaco since 2015. I know both sides of the table and understand how I can help small businesses grow and expand quickly.
What have been the biggest challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The biggest challenge is the small business entrepreneurs. Over time, they developed the idea that they didn’t have the chance or possibility to become a significant player. It looks like they forgot the fire they had when they started the entrepreneurship journey. My mission is to show them the way and bring back the sparkle that made them start in the first place.
Give us one word that describes you the best.
What makes you excited about Mondays?
Monday can’t excite you when for you, every day is Monday. I am a workaholic. The idea of certain days of working and resting does not exist in my world.
What do you value most about your culture and vision?
A culture is a result of what people have implemented in your head. Once you free yourself from these types of boundaries, you will be free to do whatever you want. A vision can only grow if you free yourself from any kind of stereotypical thinking.
What are the strategies of your company, and how do they stand unique from your competitors?
Excellent question! We encourage small business owners to register on our website for as low as 99 Euros per year (8.25 Euros per month), get exposure in Dubai and the rest of the U.A.E., and create a never-ending income stream for the product or services.
We use our own developed AI-Program to connect them with the right companies so that they can order directly from them. Big businesses have vast machinery to feed, and so the M.O.Q. (minimum order quantity) is usually huge. They cannot fulfill small orders, which is the most significant chance for SME’s worldwide.
My “Business Advisor and Facilitator” position for His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Faisal Al Qassimi’s Royal Private Office within the Gulf Cooperation Council (“G.C.C.” Gulf Cooperation Council) and my close cooperation with the Royal Office Chairman H.E. Dr. Tomas Zalesky grants maximum possibilities in the U.A.E.
How do you see the company changing in two years, and how do you see yourself creating that change?
In 2 years, we will be the most effective platform globally for S.M.E. businesses. Our engagement is not only in looking for strategic partnerships but also in working closely with European Governments on a political level offering their business owners a new way of exporting to the U.A.E.
Imagine you created enough wealth to live in Monaco and then decide after 4 years to move to Dubai. The reason for this must be significant, isn’t it?
The most fascinating fact for me was that the leadership in the U.A.E. is so much different from anything else I have seen in my life. Instead of endless thinking, they are acting. Instead of waiting, they are developing, and this is taking place in every single sector possible.
Isn’t it astonishing what they have created in just 50 years? To me, they are my role models, and it was obvious that I want to be part of this country and its entrepreneurship culture.
I want to do my part to help this beautiful country with my knowledge and diligence to make it even better and more progressive.
