Sheikh Hamdan meets Google co-founder in Dubai
Three men with common goals met on Tuesday to share their ambitious paths to success.
All three went from humble beginnings to ambitious ventures. Two went from a small Silicon Valley start-up that grew into the technology giant it is today, while the third started in a sleepy village that has since developed into a sprawling metropolis.
Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, Crown Prince of Dubai, met Google co-founder Sergey Brin. Mr Brin is also president of Google's parent company, Alphabet Inc.
"They founded Google from their shared room at the university dormitories and it grew to a market value of more then $600 million," Sheikh Hamdan said.
He said the men had an inspiring story that was similar to Dubai's: "We both share a desire to build the future.
"They created the future of knowledge; we created a model city for the future of urbanism.
"In co-operation with them, we can contribute positively to the future of humanity."
