HSBC

Due to travel restrictions and safety measures imposed in the UAE amid the outbreak of COVID-19, the program and final event has pivoted online. Over 600 startups applied, and 23 finalists from 8 countries in the MENAT Region (Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, KSA, Kuwait, Oman, Turkey and UAE) were selected to participate in a 3-month virtual program spanning from June to August 2020.

Finalists attended interactive workshops, connected with impact investors and venture capitalists, and got support from social impact practitioners and senior experts from blue chip companies.
