The Program offers eligible businesses up to $150,000 vouchers and Huawei Cloud ecosystem access
The UAE Ministry of Economy’s initiative, The Entrepreneurial Nation, has partnered with Huawei Cloud to introduce the Huawei Cloud Startup Program in the country. This program aims to accelerate the startup ecosystem in the UAE, offering eligible businesses up to $150,000 in vouchers and granting access to Huawei Cloud ecosystem resources.
The Huawei Cloud Startup Program is a global support program designed to expedite the growth of technology startups. Through this program, Huawei will utilize its expertise and cloud innovations to assist startups in overcoming challenges related to funding, technical and commercial resources, and establishing connections necessary for expansion. Consequently, this program will contribute to developing innovative businesses that can lead the region’s digital transformation.
By utilizing Huawei Cloud, startups can expand their business without the burden of high infrastructure costs and limited computing capacity typically associated with on-premise data centers. Additionally, companies can gain access to technologies and resources at a significantly reduced cost.
The Huawei Cloud Startup Program aims to support the crucial sector of startups in the UAE while contributing to the country’s digitization goals. Leveraging Huawei’s three decades of experience in ICT and digitalization, the program offers participating entrepreneurs the opportunity to access Huawei’s extensive ecosystem. This includes access to innovative technologies, technical support, mentorship, and market development opportunities. Additionally, Huawei assists in go-to-market strategies to help small business owners reach their target audience. Recognizing the importance of collaboration for growth, Huawei Cloud facilitates connections between founders, like-minded entrepreneurs, industry experts, and thought leaders worldwide.
Jiawei Liu, the Chief Executive Officer of Huawei UAE, expressed that startups and small businesses have an essential role in the ongoing progress of the UAE’s economy. Huawei is pleased to collaborate with The Entrepreneurial Nation Initiative by the Ministry of Economy, as it offers an ideal platform for Huawei and similar entities to contribute to the growth and advancement of the SME sector.
Huawei, a global leader in ICT infrastructure and smart devices, continues its commitment to being a cornerstone of digitalization and development in the UAE and worldwide.
In October 2022, the UAE Ministry of Economy initiated the second phase of The Entrepreneurial Nation, a unique and all-encompassing national endeavor designed to enhance the growth of the UAE’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and bolster the overall entrepreneurial environment of the country.
This phase of the project, founded upon extensive public-private sector collaborations, seeks to cultivate the necessary resources and strategies to promote the culture and implementation of entrepreneurship in the UAE.
