The GITEX Global Startup Movement has been bringing innovation and young entrepreneurs together this week. Two healthcare startups, Polish mobile application Dr. Barbara, and Pakistani 3D printed prosthetics startup, met and shared ideas on technology that will mean healthier lives in both of their countries and throughout the world.

Eleonora Burzyńska of Poland and Anas Niaz of Pakistan spent their time at the GITEX Global Startup Movement in discussion developing business ideas which have grown into an official partnership.

Both entrepreneurs agree that they owe the foundation of their new partnership to the GITEX Global Startup Movement. “We are thankful to have this opportunity to come together in Dubai. We would have never met otherwise, and we will both benefit from the experience,” said Burzyńska.

GITEX Technology Week runs until 20 October 2016 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Visit for more information and to register.
