UAE joins French tech net­work

7 Days in Dubai - - BUSINESS -

The UAE has be­come the first Mid­dle East na­tion to join The French Tech Hub – an in­ter­na­tional busi­ness net­work that will sup­port the French start-up com­mu­nity. Michel Mi­rail­let, Am­bas­sador of France to the UAE, an­nounced the launch of the French Tech Hub to foster ex­changes be­tween France and the UAE for en­trepreneurs as well as in­vestors. It will bring en­trepreneurs to­gether with in­vestors, in­cu­ba­tors, re­search in­sti­tu­tions and other key play­ers com­mit­ted to the growth of start-ups and their in­ter­na­tional pros­per­ity. Mi­rail­let said: “The la­bel French Tech Hub is the recog­ni­tion of the in­ter­na­tional ex­cel­lence in cre­ativ­ity and tech­no­log­i­cal de­vel­op­ment that drew us here in UAE. In ad­di­tion, Dubai is a breed­ing ground for French en­ter­prises and en­trepreneurs, thanks to French Tech Dubai UAE, a com­mu­nity that unites al­most 250 peo­ple.” Each French Tech Hub is ac­cred­ited by the French gov­ern­ment and fo­cuses on in­ter­na­tion­al­i­sa­tion as a means of growth. The French Tech Hub in Dubai will al­low com­pa­nies to pen­e­trate in­ter­na­tional mar­kets and com­pete glob­ally. It will also at­tract en­trepreneurs, top tal­ent, and in­vestors from all around the world to come to France. The French Tech global net­work now has 22 mem­ber lo­ca­tions. It rep­re­sents 300 en­tre­pre­neur men­tors – in­clud­ing 50 French tech­nol­ogy en­trepreneurs – and

1,000 start-ups.
