I am initially a solutions consultant, with years of experience in financial institutions, fashion applications, construction software and other applications. With a background of finance and project management, I took a great interest in software solutions, and later on, start-ups. Having worked with a few in Lebanon and Saudi, I began studying the start-up world through online courses, readings and conferences, and that led to the founding of City Tech Startups, the company that runs DubaiTechStartups. We noticed a lack of media coverage in the region for startups, a pure necessity to excel, and decided to help in filling this gap and expose the potential that these companies have. We are working with accelerators in the Middle East to assist Start-ups with their progress, growth and success.
