Dubai Startup Hub, the entrepreneurship arm of Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, has launched Co-Founder Dubai, a new program that will help match UAE entrepreneurs with the right co-founder to support their growth plans.
Launched ahead of STEP Conference 2019 in Dubai, this first-of-its-kind pilot matchmaking program offers UAE startups access to talent, and aspiring co-founders a unique opportunity to become a business owner.
Open to all UAE entrepreneurs, the aim of the program is to improve the success rate of new businesses. Following the application process, a total of 10 UAE startups will be selected to participate in the matchmaking program.
Applications in the second phase will then be open to aspiring co-founders who will later be shortlisted. By the end of the pilot, the selected startups will meet with various potential co-founders and choose one candidate that will join their respective teams.
