Dubai Startup Hub, an initiative of Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry will organize the first-ever Dubai Technology Tour, which aims to drive UAE-India collaboration in the areas of fintech and health tech.
The virtual trade mission, scheduled for the second week of September, will see 15 entrepreneurs representing promising Indian scale-ups connect with relevant UAE stakeholders, including investors, corporates, and peer scale-ups, pitch their businesses and participate in business matchmaking sessions organized by Dubai Chamber.
The Dubai Technology Tour, organized in partnership with Startup India and Mumbai Fintech Hub, will familiarize delegates with Dubai’s economy and business environment, as well as the competitive advantages that the emirate offers startups and scale-ups specializing in advanced technologies. In addition, the initiative positions Dubai as a preferred hub for Indian entrepreneurs who are bringing innovative business concepts to the market.
Indian entrepreneurs keen on joining the Dubai Technology Tour will have until August 5th to register their interest online. The initiative is a continuation of Dubai Startup Hub’s efforts to attract high-potential Indian startups and scale-ups offering cutting-edge solutions that support Dubai’s innovation strategy and transition to a knowledge-based economy.
These efforts began last year when Dubai Startup Hub organized a roadshow to New Delhi and Bangalore in cooperation with Dubai Technology Entrepreneur Campus (Dtec), the largest hub of its kind in the region and wholly-owned by Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA), where two Indian startups were selected as part of a competition and awarded office space at Dtec.
