Flat6Labs, the MENA region’s seed-stage programme and early-stage venture capital firm, will be making its Gitex Global debut at the 2022 edition of the show.

Over the five days of the event, Flat6Labs will host 24 of its startups in rotation, offering visitors an opportunity to engage with each of these at one of the stand’s dedicated demo kiosks. These organisations span multiple sectors including edtech, healthtech, cybersecurity, real estate, construction, sustainability, automotive and sports engagement — with each offering a product or service designed to disrupt their industry.

In addition, it will host its Demo Day on October 12, where startups that are part of Cohort 3 of Flat6Labs Ignite will have the opportunity to present and pitch to regional venture capitalists, angel investors, corporates and entrepreneurship ecosystem leaders, with the aim of securing additional investment.

“While for over four decades, Gitex has been the region’s premier enterprise IT trade show, we are excited to see it also become a platform for the region’s vibrant startup ecosystem. Over the last year and a half, Flat6Labs Ignite, which we run in partnership with ADQ’s DisruptAD, has quickly become one of the most sought-after seed programmes in the UAE, even drawing the formal support of the Ministry of Economy in Abu Dhabi,” said Ryaan Sharif, general manager at Flat6Labs UAE.

“Building on this momentum, at our Gitex debut, we will showcase the value of our programme, and provide our startups with the opportunity to reach key stakeholders from across the region. We also intend to engage with innovative startups attending the show that would be interested in applying to be part of Cycle 4 of our programme and more importantly looking to scale into the MENA region using Abu Dhabi as the headquarters,” added Sharif.

“Each of these startups has been meticulously vetted from over 700 applicants and has subsequently received mentorship to refine their strategies and operations. They are now primed for the transformation from promising startup to industry pioneer.”
