Silicon Oasis Founders 'SOF', a wholly owned incubator of Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority, hosted a special certification event to recognise the support of over 53 business partners to its incubation ventures across the categories of funding, deal flow, advisory and service.
Working closely with leading multinational and home-grown entities, SOF leverages their wide ranging expertise to increase the success ratio of its varied start-up ventures at the integrated free zone technology park.
The event showcased the contribution of software giants Microsoft Gulf, SAP, and Oracle, as well as Dubai-based telecommunications operator DU.
Hans Christensen, Director of Silicon Oasis Founders, said, "Silicon Oasis Founders aims to create a large eco-system of partners with diverse expertise to support the acceleration of incubated ventures. This is in line with our holistic incubation approach that includes offering expert advice."
The partners, comprising organisations and individuals, provide advice and support either voluntarily or as a paid-for-service depending on the profile of the venture.
With decades of collective business experience and expertise, the partners share a passion and track-record for supporting young companies and professionals.
Christensen added, "Silicon Oasis Founders partners have helped thousands of entrepreneurs including start-ups and SMEs in the region; each corporate supports Silicon Oasis Founders in multiple ways. We are excited to continue working closely with our partners to support future innovators. We remain committed toward nurturing entrepreneurship, promoting technology innovation and positioning Dubai Silicon Oasis as an ideal location for tech outfits."
Silicon Oasis Founders aims to support DSO-based ventures in the seed phase that prefer co-investment for business models in the mobile e-commerce, apps or internet technology space.
The centre additionally supports technologies that require low investment and short incubation time from six - 12 months.
