We are happy to announce that Clarida Technologies has been selected as one of the world’s most innovative companies to participate in the Dubai Future Accelerator program. Dubai is one of the most exciting, growing cities with mind-blowing innovation projects in the world. Clarida Technologies will work with the Dubai Police to use artificial intelligence for enhancing public safety and support law enforcement.
Today the tech ecosystem of Dubai is booming, investing billions of dollars in the education and technologies sectors. Dubai has set the goal of becoming a global start-up hub for innovation and emerging technologies in the Middle East, by attracting promising start-ups and entrepreneurs from around the world. Huge support from government and semi-government institutions, along with a growing number of incubators and accelerators places Dubai at the forefront of tech innovation. Among such government-backed initiatives is the 9-week Dubai Future Accelerators program, to which our team was invited.
The Dubai Future Accelerators program was launched in 2016 and is hosted by the Dubai Future Foundation with the mission to design and co-create the future of key strategic sectors in cooperation with Dubai government entities. During this year’s Cohort 5, 42 companies were selected out of 2000 applicants amongst which Clarida Technologies. Our team is excited to be amongst the world`s most creative minds selected to join Cohort 5 which started on the 24th of September 2018. This vibrant 9-week program perfectly aligns with the mission of Clarida Technologies, namely to solve the local and global challenges of tomorrow in a data-driven manner. Top-level government entities participating in the DFA program bring up crucial challenges for the 21st century. The government parties looking to solve these challenges through partnerships with companies selected for the program include the Dubai Police, Dubai Municipality, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, Roads and Transport Authority and Dubai Health Authority.
In July 2018 we received the invitation to apply for participation in the Dubai Future Accelerators Program. After several rounds of interviews with the Dubai Police, we received the official confirmation being selected as a participant of Cohort 5. We believe this program will become an incredible experience and we are enthusiastic to explore the opportunities and challenges where our technology will play a сrucial role in building the business platforms for tomorrow. We are looking forward to meeting other like-minded teams and participants to co-create innovative solutions. We are ready to prepare for the future with the DFA team!
