Kuwait: Huawei’s Eco-development department has launched the first edition of its program to support Startups in the Middle East and Africa region. This first-of-its-kind initiative is designed to support regional companies that have recently launched their mobile app and to help them grow their base of users through the Huawei’s official app distribution platform AppGallery - one of the top three marketplaces globally with more than 530 million monthly active users across 170 countries.
After releasing their apps on AppGallery leveraging Huawei Mobile Service Core (HMS), the selected startups will benefit from the Huawei ecosystem team's extended support. It includes many areas such as technology integration support in order to deliver the best quality app to users, free of charge feature placements on AppGallery and directly on Huawei devices in order to boost their user acquisition, and finally additional support to run dedicated campaigns through the Huawei ecosystem.
The first edition of this initiative will include mobile apps from popular categories among users, such as shopping, education, social, sport & health, finance, food & drink, navigation & transport. From April onwards the following apps will be available to download from AppGallery for Huawei’s users: Baaz, Basket.jo, Breadfast, Wajeez, FittiCoin, Homzmart, Invygo, Konnash, Okadoc, Munch:on, Petra Ride, Swan, TiLa Online Shopping, WaffarX, and Chefaa.
“As part of Huawei’s strategy, we are proud to help startups to achieve their business goals by giving them the support they need within the app development community. At Huawei, we believe that most of today's startups will be the popular apps of the future, and we will ensure that they are available on AppGallery to meet our user’s needs”. Said Lu Geng, Vice President Middle East, and Africa Global Partnerships & Eco-Development
This new initiative places Huawei as an active player that supports the digital transformation of industries and enterprises and adheres to the global strategy "platform + ecosystem" that fosters teaming up with app developers to meet today's end users' needs. Small businesses featuring local apps play an essential role in developing AppGallery and overall user satisfaction.
