The MBRIF Accelerator invited applicants for the Summer Cohort, including the top twenty businesses from 159 applications, to pitch their solution to our Advisory & Decision Committee and MBRIF team on Wednesday, October 2nd. The third of its kind, this event marked the coming together of months spent reviewing applications, before being invited to pitch, and we couldn’t be more impressed at the caliber of candidates.
We aim to nurture local businesses and attract innovators from all over the world to the UAE. Our Summer Cohort had innovators applying from 38 countries, a 31% increase from the geographical coverage that we saw from our Spring Cohort applicants. It's fantastic to see the growth in the level of interest in our program across the world! Stay tuned for the announcement of our new members.
