Review I The first GITEX GLOBAL

A week ago, from Octo­ber 10 - 14, 2022, the Digi­tal Hub Initia­ti­ve pre­sen­ted the Ger­man start-up eco­sys­tem in Dubai for the first time at North Star, the start-up fair of GITEX GLO­BAL. The teams Feel­belt, Klang­chat and yoo​na​.ai from the Media­Tech Hub Pots­dam were the­re and were able to pre­sent them­sel­ves along­side lea­ding tech­no­lo­gy com­pa­nies from the Midd­le East, Asia and Afri­ca. We are hap­py for our teams for this uni­que experience. 

High­lights: Super­no­va Chall­enge, Match­ma­king and new acquaintances

At the pitch com­pe­ti­ti­on “Super­no­va Chall­enge”, Klang­chat was one of the fina­lists in the Block­chain cate­go­ry. We con­gra­tu­la­te the team on this gre­at suc­cess! The Super­no­va Chall­enge is the lar­gest pitch com­pe­ti­ti­on in the Midd­le East, Afri­ca and South Asia. 

Other high­lights included atten­ding a match­ma­king event orga­nis­ed by the Ger­man-Emi­ra­ti Cham­ber of Indus­try and Com­mer­ce (AHK), on the 73rd! flo­or, as well as wel­co­ming the Pri­va­te Office of Sheikh in Ahmed Al Mak­to­um to the Digi­tal Hub Initia­ti­ve stand. 


GITEX Tech­no­lo­gy Week is a must-attend event in Dubai - the world’s fas­test gro­wing tech­no­lo­gy hub - and is held at the Dubai World Trade Cent­re. Sin­ce its incep­ti­on in 1981, visio­na­ries and tech­no­lo­gy pio­neers have come to Dubai to see the tech­no­lo­gy that is lea­ding the digi­tal transformation.
