Autism Centre in Dubai



Background
Isthmus Partners identified a need for quality autism services for children in Dubai. Identifying the right USA-based operating partner, we started up the The Carbone Clinic (www.thecarboneclinic.ae), which commenced operations in late 2013.

Approach
Isthmus Partners is continuously on the lookout for potential business opportunities where it can act as a principal/entrepreneur. Having spent a very considerable amount of time to familiarise ourselves with children’s special needs education and particularly autism, we identified the need for quality autism services in Dubai provided by certified Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) practitioners. We partnered with one of the world’s foremost practitioners in the field of ABA to start up a center in Dubai.

Isthmus Partners prepared the business plan, raised capital and implemented the project with the Company opening its doors to children in late 2013. Isthmus Partners acts as the co-entrepreneur and asset manager of the Company.

The Carbone Clinic business model is based on a double bottom line model, where a considerable amount of the profits of the Center are to be utilised to fund autism services for children from families in economically challenging situations and to influence public policy on autism.

Isthmus Partners is continuously looking for business opportunities where it can play a major role in all phases from feasibility to capital raising to business plan implementation to growth and maturity.
