The unique new partnership will kick off with the Digital Bridge programme, which will support South Korean startups looking to enter the UAE.
Already a market leader in digital solutions, UAE-based Injazat has announced a new partnership with South Korean startup hub, Born2Global, in a deal that will seek to provide mutual benefits to tech sectors in both countries.
The memorandum of agreement signed by both parties will come into effect first through a new collaborative programme, Digital Bridge, which will see the Mubadala-owned company support South Korean startups looking to expand into the UAE, which is seen as a gateway into markets in MENA, Africa and Europe.
"Accelerated by the pandemic, we have seen an increased interest by public and private sector organisations wanting to be future-ready for the digital economy,” Ijazat CEO, Khaled Al Melhi (pictured in main image), said of the motivations behind the unique new partnership. “We see it as our role to be a trusted partner in their digital transformation journeys, yet always having the end-users and the communities we serve in mind. Entering into strategic and global partnerships, such as the one with our esteemed partners from Born2Global, will enable us to find digital and creative solutions to develop platforms that will drive entire industries."
Partakers of the Digital Bridge programme will convene on a monthly basis and look to establish partnerships with startups and firms that can offer what is being called ‘beneficial technologies’ in regards to sectors such as healthcare, education and energy, as well as smart cities.
