Combining investment, venture capital, growth hacking, cultural shift coaching and digital consulting, the platform hopes to incentivise companies, startups, and investors in the region.
Italian-headquartered B2B innovation platform GELLIFY, which supports start-ups and companies to the best possible exits, is launching its first initiative in the Middle East. Its new hub is opening in Dubai Internet City, the world’s first ever tech community launched in 1999.
Simultaneously acting as an investor, a venture capital, a growth advisor, a cultural shift coach and a start-up and digital consultant, GELLIFY hopes to create a holistic ecosystem. By addressing startups, companies, and investors in its three-pronged approach, the platform focuses on fast and sustainable growth and collaboration.
“By leveraging our B2B tech startups, research, experience in digital transformation capabilities, and community, we can help both public and private sectors to implement their digital roadmaps,” says Fabio Nalucci, CEO and Founder of GELLIFY Group. “We have invested about 15 Million Euros in Italy, UK and Spain, and we plan to replicate this performance in the Middle East in the next three years.”
Their Middle East rollout plans include this first hub in Dubai, followed by a ‘phygital’ hub in Saudi Arabia. “Out of the investment funds raised by the Group, one third will be spent to build a team in the region and empower GCC startups and allow them to scale internationally,” says Massimo Canizzo, CEO and co-founder of GELLIFY Middle East.
In response to the current COVID-19 crisis, GELLIFY is launching a mini-series of sessions, to start on April 21st, called ‘Future-Proof Your Organization with ‘Black Swan' Capabilities,’ where GELLIFY experts and external speakers will talk about how innovative technologies can help to create a more resilient and sustainable economy.
