Established by Dubai Chamber in 2016, Dubai Startup Hub is the first initiative of its kind in the Middle East and North Africa region. The initiative aims to provide clarity and guidance for entrepreneurs throughout their journey, while it also leverages public-private sector partnerships to promote innovation and develop Dubai’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.
She noted that the startups at Dubai Startup Hub’s stand benefitted from the exposure that came with exhibiting at the MENA region’s largest and most global startup event, while they also capitalised on the opportunity to interact with visitors who attended the exhibition.
Natalia Sycheva, Manager of Entrepreneurship at Dubai Chamber, explained that GITEX Future Stars 2018 provided an ideal opportunity for Dubai Startup Hub to engage directly with startups from the UAE, highlight the benefits provided to Dubai Startup Hub members, and enroll startups in various programmes and initiatives.
Before being selected, the startups went through a rigorous selection process which involved presentations and interviews with Dubai Startup Hub team.
A total of 10 selected UAE-based startups were given an opportunity to exhibit at Dubai Startup Hub’s stand at GITEX Future Stars 2018 and showcase their innovative solutions in the areas of transportation, hospitality, healthcare, consumer technology and cyber security. Among the exhibiting startups were Baaqah, Mnewrah, Thrive Medical, wework, Safee, Qmeter, Corporate Stack, LifeOnScreen, Steppa, and Wello.
Visitors to Dubai Startup Hub’s stand at GITEX Future Stars 2018 were provided an overview of the support and resources offered to startups in Dubai, as well as the benefits of participating in Market Access, Dubai Smartpreneur Competition, Entrepreneurship Advocacy Series, and other Dubai Startup Hub initiatives.
Established in 1965, the Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry is a non-profit public entity, whose mission is to represent, support and protect the interests of the business community in Dubai by creating a favourable business environment, supporting the development of business, and by promoting Dubai as an international business hub.
