Evangelia Balanou has drawn this editor’s attention to an extraordinarily attractive-looking offer. Dubai 100 is:
“an intensive six months cross-disciplinary pre-accelerator programme designed to develop the growth of young talent through industry awareness, entrepreneurship mentorship and business opportunities. The programme is free of charge and does not require any equity stake in graduating startups. We fully cover visas, flights, accommodation and office spaces for accepted applicants for the duration of the programme.”
The principal selection criteria are:
- 15 international recent graduates in teams of up to 3 members. Between the ages of 20-30 years old
- Teams should apply with an innovative early stage idea in the med-tech and digital health space
- Teams that have 3 cofounders willing to spend the entire 6 months duration in Dubai and working with full commitment on their start-up will be given priority over others
- Teams should not have participated in any accelerator programmes, received any investments or experienced significant traction yet.
NOTE: the application deadline is 15th November.
Good luck…and do let us know if you applied as a result of this blog, and were accepted!
