Hussain Sajwani Built His Business By Providing the Best

When Hussain Sajwani was a young student he made a deal with himself that he would never go into business for himself. He worked many hours after school in his father’s store and said that he would get a degree and become a professional and then he would be able to work normal hours.


He did get a degree from the University of Washington in engineering in the United States, and then returned to his home country of Dubai to work for an oil and gas company there.


However, opportunity changed Hussain’s boyhood pledge and he did start his own business after all. He formed a catering company that very successfully served food to the US Army during the Gulf Wars in the countries of Kuwait and Iraq. That business is still intact today and doing very well.


In 2002, Sajwani formed a company called DAMAC, a real estate investment company that would keep the Hussain Sajwani family in a very prosperous position for sure. When the UAE government made the decision to allow foreigners the right to immigrate to the UAE, Sajwani calculated correctly that there would be a subsequent boom in real estate.


Sajwani became a master of marketing and there were not many places in the country that did not have ads and promotions that the DAMAC owner had placed. One of his favorite ad slogans was, “A Bently For Every Apartment.” Proving that good advertising works, his first project was completely sold out before he even started construction.


Sajwani also used very conservative business tactics. He always pays for the land for his projects in cash in full. That way there will never be any issue with foreclosure. He also finances very little of the rest of the building projects which helps solidify the entire investment. Each separate apartment project has its own accounting system and bank account. Should one project prove difficult from a financial standpoint, it won’t have any effect on the rest of the business.


So far, DAMAC has built 19,000 apartments with an additional 44,000 at various levels of completion. People love the luxurious apartments and resort facilities that DAMAC provides and it is a proven commodity in the country.

Securus Technologies Helps Inmates be Successful

Securus Technologies has led the way for correctional facility defense for the last three decades. Beginning in the late 1980s, Securus Technologies has expanded from their headquarter office in Dallas, Texas and has expanded throughout the state of Texas and also has a regional office in the state of Georgia located in the city of Atlanta.


Securus Technologies has made it their life work to not only keep inmates safe from the crime inside correctional facilities but to also help prepare them to become productive civilians when they leave the prison system.


Securus Technologies uses several innovations to help correctional facilities keep inmate crime at a minimum. Cell Defender is one such innovative product. This product allows a correctional facility to set up sensors throughout their building so that when a contraband cell phone is used it picks up the signal and locates that cell phone. Cell Defender will then take a cell phone and scan into data in search of keywords that signal inmate crime.


Securus Technologies also has created a product which is aptly called Wireless Containment Solutions. Wireless Containment Solutions specifically targets and annihilates the cell phones’ Wi-Fi capability.


In addition to these products which decrease inmate crime, Securus Technologies will replace those cell phones with ones that they have created which allow inmates to have a better life.


The cell phones created by Securus Technologies allows an inmate to use their visitation hours to call and video chat with their families at home. In addition to this wonderful thing, the cell phone will also allow the inmate to pursue a college degree online. Through the cell phone, an inmate has a true college experience where they are expected to read textbooks, do homework, and turn in reports. This helps them to secure a job upon release.
