During the webinar, Dubai Startup Hub introduced the group of 40 new members to the various initiatives offered to enhance their competitiveness and help them sustain and grow during the current business environment.

Dubai Startup Hub also revealed that starting April, it would be providing a new service of online mentorship to support entrepreneurs during such time. Accordingly, its new and existing members can secure specialised entrepreneurship guidance, support with reviewing their business model, improving and rehearsing investor pitch, and navigating the Dubai market.

Using the latest technologies, Dubai Startup Hub was able to communicate and interact with the attendees, answer their questions regarding the services and benefits, in a seamless way. "This highlighted the importance of technology in reducing the impact of distance by achieving the goals of hosting a workshop or seminar digitally," it added.
