Recently, there have been a lot of startup accelerator and incubator programmes that have launched in the Middle East by corporations. Usually, that is not the case. There are dedicated companies, called accelerators and incubators, that provide services for startups, such as training, networking, investment, and more. However, larger corporations, such as Microsoft, American Express and Chalhoub Group, have all dipped their toes in the corporate accelerator space, as they see the promising technology and products that these startups bring to the table.
Another one of these incubators, called Intelak, has been launched by Emirates, Etisalat, GE, and Dubai Tourism, and has just wrapped up its fourth cohort with a demo day, where the most promising startups showcase their progress and development. UIQT, Airspace, 16Trips, and Travezy were among the startups that underwent the incubation process and managed to progress to the next stage in the incubation process.
