This month we celebrated the Accelerator’s 1-year anniversary since our program was launched by hosting our 4th Pitch Day event. Applicants were pitching for a place in our Winter Cohort and were selected from our special edition opening of applications, which kicked-off during GITEX and closed 2 weeks later.
Applications for our Winter Cohort included innovators from 38 countries, a 31% increase in our geographical coverage compared to the coverage recorded from applications received for our Summer Cohort. The top businesses invited were selected among 96 applications that were submitted during the special edition opening of applications and pitched their solutions to our Advisory and Decision Committee and MBRIF team on Wednesday, December 11th. We’d like to thank all innovators for presenting and the ADC for their incredible insights.
We’re happy to see the continuous increase of interest in our program by innovators regardless of their geographical location and look forward to working with our news members soon.
Stay tuned for the announcement of our Winter Cohort members!
