The 8th edition of startAD’s Corporate Sprint Accelerator, in partnership with Ripple’s University Blockchain Research Institute, is a 4-week virtual accelerator for seed-stage fintech startups looking to enter in the UAE market.
The accelerator immerses startups in robust local customer discovery and validation activities through a combination of training, mentorship, 1-1 meetings with corporate partners, and investor pitches. Within 4 weeks, the startups are equipped to pilot solutions with industry leaders, while corporates are enabled to innovate with startups disrupting their core businesses.
The fast-paced program will include two key phases:
– Pre-program phase (10 weeks): Startup recruitment, interviews and assessment.
– On-program phase (4 weeks): Training, coaching, expert panel sessions, corporate startup meetings and mentoring.
The program will culminate in a high-calibre market access day and an investor demo day on November 25th, 2021 in which the participating startups will have the opportunity to pitch to regional industry leaders and investors for business and investment opportunities.
