Hanan Harhara Al Yafei

CEO, Hub71

Appointed to lead Hub 71 last July, the former executive director of human capital at Mubadala has made rapid strides within her new role. When she took over, there were around 50 startups operating out of tech ecosystem Hub 71. By February this year, that number has roughly doubled to over 100 tech startups – and growing. Hub 71 is part of the Ghadan 21 programme, with startups  operating out of it cumulatively raising over Dhs185m since Hub 71’s launch in 2019.

Under Al Yafei’s leadership, it also struck a strategic agreement with UAE national carrier Etihad Airways to collaborate on mentorship opportunities, community events and workshops.
