Teams Contestants Jury


What's new this year?

This year we've decided to make things more exciting by reaching out to UAE's prestigious accelerators and incubators. We've asked them to nominate their top start-ups to represent them in the pitching competition. These start-ups are UAE-based, futuristic and are solving a critical challenge facing our society.

All the nominated start-ups will then pitch in front of a prestigious jury including PEs, VCs and industry experts. And, guess what? It's all going to take place LIVE at SME Beyond Borders 2017 on November 9.

Benefits

The winner, along with the accelerator/incubator it represents, will be awarded at Stars of Business Awards 2017 in a glittering ceremony. That's not all. The grand prize for the winner includes free 1-year digital and print advertising by CPI Business as well as a 3-minute video describing their success story.

Are you ready to witness these start-ups battle it out in a challenge of a lifetime?
