Forty-six startups from around the world have been selected from a list of over 1000 applications to form the next cohort at Dubai Future Accelerators (DFA), it was revealed today.
Taking up their places for the nine-week program at the DFA’s headquarters in Emirates Towers, entrepreneurs with cutting-edge technologies will be partnering with various government-run entities, including Dubai Police, Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), Etisalat, Emirates, and more.
“In total, we have 150 entrepreneurs this round, 30 different nationalities from 14 countries. Small startups are working along big multinationals such as IBM, Nokia, and LG. And our oldest participant is 70 years old. This is a truly international and diverse program,” says Vera Futorjanski, communications head at Dubai Future Foundation.
Our very own Cerebral Fix and Skilitics have partnered and been selected as part of the cohort.
