The 6th cohort of Dubai Future Accelerators, DFA, is going to be launched by the Dubai Future Foundation, with about 30 local and global participant companies.
According to the Media Office of the Government of Dubai, the participant organizations of this 6th cohort are from 15 different countries, with two companies from Poland and Denmark each, three from US and Spain each, and six from UAE. Companies from Finland, India, France, Chile, Singapore, Japan, Sri Lanka, Ukraine and Sweden are also participating in this program. These companies are going to work with government entities to deal with their respective industry specific challenges. The program aims to bring innovative and smart solutions to tackle the challenges.
All the government entities that are taking part in this program play vital roles in a wide range of industries. It is a great opportunity for the participant companies to learn a lot from these bodies. Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, Dubai Health Authority, Dubai Roads and Transport Authority, Dubai Knowledge and Human Development Authority, Dubai Municipality and Etisalat Digital are the government entities that are looking forward to work with Dubai Future Accelerators.
Saeed Al Falasi, the Executive Director of Future Platforms at Dubai Future Foundation, is very hopeful of the prospect of the 6th Cohort, as companies from Japan and Chile are participating for the first time ever, showing that Dubai Future Foundation has been quite successful in attracting foreign companies in accelerator programs.
The Dubai Future Accelerator was launched in 2016 by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of Dubai Executive Council and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Dubai Future Foundation. Within three years, the organization has emerged as a reputed global platform for startups and entrepreneurs around the world.
