In partnership with Ripple’s UBRI

The 9th edition of Corporate Sprint Accelerator or CSA 9 offers early stage fintech startups a platform to put their best foot forward in the GCC region by preparing them to benefit from the region’s regulatory framework, providing access to investment opportunities, opening doors to business deals and partnerships and building their network in the global financial services and startup ecosystem.

Visibility and exposure to the region is amplified by participation at GITEX, the region’s largest tech trade show, running from October 10-14, 2022. The all-expenses paid trip will include a pitch day, along with one-on-one meetings with prominent investors, media, and sought-after members of the region’s startup ecosystem.
