Dubai Chamber's online startup platform a hit at Gitex Technology Week
At the event, startups pinned their projects onto a giant digital billboard displaying the map of Dubai. From there, investors could express interest in the projects, seeking new business partnerships upon the conclusion of tech week. After the week ends, the ideas will be put on the DubaiStartupHub website. Investors can then get in touch with an idea’s owner for further collaboration.
“In line with the Dubai government’s strategic directions on smart cities and to solidify Dubai’s status as one of the leading technology hubs, the DubaiStartupHub consolidates the concept of a smarter community by offering comprehensive information and services,” Hamad Buamim, president and CEO at Dubai Chamber, said. “Most importantly, this digital tool helps place the start-ups on the bustling business map of Dubai.”
The hub, powered by and built on the IBM Cloud, aligns with Dubai Chamber’s goal of supporting entrepreneurs and innovation.
