The Entrepreneurial Nation, the Ministry of Economy’s initiative to support the UAE’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, launched the ‘ScaleUp Digitize’ programme in partnership with Huawei.

ScaleUp Digitize falls under the ScaleUp programme, which is one of the three main tracks of The Entrepreneurial Nation.

The programme is aimed at enabling startups and SMEs in the UAE to enhance their digital infrastructure through the adoption of cloud technologies and services.

The integration of these services are set to expedite their growth to become ‘Unicorns’ with the ability to compete in local and international markets.

These efforts are in line with the ‘Principles of the 50’ and the goal to strengthen the UAE’s position as a leading global hub for entrepreneurship, talent and FDI.

The Ministry of Economy has invited SMEs to sign up for the ScaleUp Digitize programme through The Entrepreneurial Nation website.

In order to be eligible for registration in the programme, applicants must be:

  • Owners of already-existing SMEs with 10 or more employees.
  • Generate revenues or must have successfully secured funding at least once.
  • The founding team must have a passion for advanced cloud technologies and AI.

The deadline for the submission of applications is August 20, 2022.

The ministry has stated that only 15 SMEs will be selected to participate in the first cycle of the programme.

Each selected company will receive Huawei Cloud training and vouchers valued at up to Dhs60,000. These vouchers can be redeemed to purchase cloud computing services, cloud storage, cloud network, and cloud database, in addition to receiving hands-on training in Huawei Cloud technologies, artificial intelligence and big data tools.
