Omar Al Ashi: “Visit Dubai and Start Renting with Urent”

The journey of entrepreneurship is fraught with challenges, and the true measure of an entrepreneur’s spirit is not always in abundance but in how many obstacles they have turned into opportunities; how their adversities have become advantages by the lessons they have learned in overcoming hardship.

27-year-old businessman Omar Al Ashi is the perfect example of turning barriers into bridges to reach his next level of success by keeping a positive mindset and bringing investment and entrepreneurial opportunities to the masses.


He says “visit Dubai and start renting with Urent”.

Omar is surely a hardworking soul and thinks outside the box. He started his own online marketplace for vehicle rentals in 2019 along with CFO ‘Greg Holt’ with a broader vision to help the entire MENA market. He launched ‘Urent’ that now helps people around the MENA region in renting vehicles easily.

Omar Al Ashi, said recently that Dubai, which is famous for its infrastructure and high demand of cars, is poised to benefit as growing Airbnb of vehicles focus more on cleanliness and sanitisation post-pandemic.

And Urent has seen a massive growth and increase in revenue by 300-400% since the last 6 months” Omar added.

After analyzing the growth in his business, he decided to facilitate this model to other traditional rental companies to completely digitalize their businesses via Urent Mobile App.

With the growing automotive scene in UAE owing to the rising population in the country, who would even think of buying a new car if they have Urent?
