A close friend of President Trump, Arab real estate mogul and DAMAC owner Hussain Sajwani has lived out his own example of Trump’s book “Art of the Deal.” He’s worked closely with UAE government leaders and contractors to build some of the most extravagant properties in the Middle East, but how he arrived at that point came from the lessons he learned from his father. As a young boy, Hussain Sajwani would help his father manage the merchandise at his trade shop, and he would notice sometimes that his father would strike high-priced deals with visiting customers when selling certain items. He learned from his father how to identify commodities in the market that were high in demand, and in doing so would later apply that principle to real estate as DAMAC owner.

Hussain Sajwani got his bachelor’s degree from the University of Washington and then launched his first business, an international catering venture. The business’s clients ranged from large corporations to non-profit groups and government agencies. While running this company, Sajwani was exposed to even more opportunities to build wealth through buying affordable commercial real estate and turning it into highly developed parts of the UAE’s capital, Dubai. He founded DAMAC Properties in 2002 and its portfolio has been steadily growing ever since.

Some of the most well-known properties Hussain Sajwani has developed as DAMAC owner include the Marina Terrace housing area near the Persian Gulf coast, Park Towers in the financial district, DAMAC Tower in Beirut, Lebanon, DAMAC Hills which has been part of a partnership with the Trump Organization, and AYKON City. DAMAC Properties was privately-owned for about the first 13 years that Hussain Sajwani owned it, but a few years ago he took it public and had shares listed on both the Muscat Exchange and the London Stock Exchange. In addition to investing in real estate, Sajwani supports several philanthropies sponsored by the UAE government that include the Red Crescent, One Million Arab Coders, and various humanitarian aid groups.

After the disaster in Texas that was Hurricane Harvey, there were many businesses and regular citizens alike who felt as if they could only sit back and watch in horror as people lost not only their possessions and homes but often their lives as well.

The successful company known as Stream Energy did not rest on their laurels, however. they actually jumped into action and put their vast resources to work as only an energy giant could. It is practically embedded in the DNA of the Stream Energy company to be philanthropically-minded. The company, who sells energy directly to consumers, began the charity foundation known as “Stream Cares”. This puts a more formal structure on the philanthropy nature of the company, even though Stream Energy has been renowned in this area for the past dozen or more years.

While corporate philanthropy is a relatively new ideal that major corporations are subscribing too, it has been with Stream Energy for quite a while, this is perhaps due to their unique nature of doing business. The way the company operates is thus. The energy company sells it energy directly to people or to businesses who then build up a network of loyal associates. The associates earn a commission through each sale which is made. Not only energy is sold but also services such as access to clean energy and virtual doctors along with telemedicine.

Since the business is more individualized than other corporations, the net effect is to actually maximize the philanthropist nature of the giving spirit that belongs to each member. One of the biggest and most-embraced charities that Stream Energy has formed is one called Hope Supply, which seeks to aid in the welfare of homeless children throughout Texas. With the help that Stream Energy has already brought, it is safe to say the giving will not stop anytime soon.
