This is the largest ever delegation of KSUM startups to be present at the Dubai Gitex venue
With the aim of exploring business and investment opportunities by showcasing innovative products, technology skills and sustainable ideas on the global stage, Kerala Startup Mission, the nodal agency for entrepreneurship development and incubation activities in the Kerala, will have its delegation of 40 startups make their presence at the prestigious Gitex Global 2022.
Gitex Global 2022, the world’s largest, most inclusive tech and startup event, is a four-day affair which got underway at the Dubai World Trade Centre on October 10. These 40 companies from KSUM will attend the startup-focused event North Star, to be held at Zabeel Hall of Dubai World Trade Centre.
KSUM startups to attend startups confluence
The latest edition of Gitex Global is featuring the highest-ever contingent of KSUM-supported startups from sectors including Edutech, cybersecurity, enterprise tech, agri tech, Internet of Things, media tech, health tech, fintech, insurance tech and consumer tech.
The delegation will also attend ‘India Startups Confluence 2022’ to connect Indian startups to startups from UAE and the Middle East-based larger ecosystem stakeholders. KSUM is the presenting partner for this event.
Exuding confidence that the event will open immense opportunities for startups considering the time-tested cordial relationship between Kerala and the Middle East, KSUM CEO Anoop Ambika, said that apart from bagging business and investment opportunities, GITEX Global will offer startups opportunities for scaling up their business. Besides displaying their products and solutions, these ventures will also explore greater expansion and investor connect to the Middle East.
Global Launch Pad for Indian startups in the Middle East
Further, KSUM is also planning to set up a Global Launch Pad for Indian startups in the Middle East to avail support and benefits of KSUM activities after incubating them. KSUM will also extend support to them if they want to shift to Kerala later.
The KSUM delegation will visit Sharjah Research Technology and Innovation Park on October 15 and interact with their peers. More than 800 global startup exhibitors, 600-plus investors and 400-plus speakers will attend the North Star event.
