Launched across 7 regions worldwide, the Global Startup Ecosystem (GSE) is running its 2nd annual digital startup accelerator, selecting 100 startups working in frontier tech areas.
Frontier tech-focused startups in the Middle East now have a chance to join one of the world's most innovative digital business incubators, as Global Startup Ecosystem (GSE) is relaunching its annual programme across seven regions worldwide. What do they mean by frontier tech? The accelerator, founded by Forbes 30 Under 30 Entrepreneur- Christine Souffrant Ntim, is looking for those intrepid entrepreneurs venturing into the realms of space, Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Blockchain, Drones, IOT, Robotics, Synthetic Biology - Nano Tech - and 3D Printing. It will also focus on the areas of Fintech, Ed tech, Health Tech, Sustainable Development Goals, Smart City, and Diversity.
Last year, 500 companies across 63 countries completed GSE’s digital accelerator programme, one of the fastest growing digital accelerators worldwide, which is this year going bigger, seeking 700 innovators, facilitated by over 50 global speakers. And here's the catch: startups, small businesses and even freelancers with a project can apply! Each application round is rolling admission until the top 100 are selected. From the finalist pool, 10 will be selected to pitch investors and influencers on demo day, and the top three are announced at the conclusion of the programme to receive partner prizes, media features, and potential investment. GSE primarily provides online digital accelerator programs for startup ecosystems in different geographic regions, industry verticals, and impactful topic areas. For its MENA accelerator, they've partnered up with F6S.
