Techstars Dubai

During the Techstars Dubai Demo Day, Streams of Progress was on hand to meet the startups and the stakeholders who were responsible for bringing the Techstars program to Dubai.

The startups that participated in the first Techstars program in the MENA region, hail from across the globe; ranging from the United States, Estonia, United Kingdom, Canada and the UAE.  The curriculum of the Techstars Dubai program does not differ from its counterpart programs globally, while the mentor pool was a combination of both local and global mentors.

A tenet of all Techstars program that translated resoundingly well in the Dubai program was the notion of #GIVEFIRST, the idea of helping others where ever possible.  Every startup that participated in the program emphasized how the Techstars community, whether mentors or fellow founders, would give advice and feedback to help one another.

Each guest was able to share with us their perspective on the inaugural program.  A huge thanks to all our guests for sharing their thoughts and perspectives.
