Our perspective on all things digital and entrepreneurship
AstroLabs, in partnership with Google for Startups, has officially launched our Digital Upskill and Startup Acceleration Scholarship Programs. The scholarships are designed to support our overall mission to grow and develop the digital ecosystem in the MENA region, and we’ve already awarded over ten inspiring entrepreneurs with Digital Upskill Scholarships!
The Digital Upskill Scholarship gives entrepreneurs an opportunity to take one of our Open Academy courses in Digital Marketing, eCommerce or Coding at a reduced cost. Successful applicants are selected based on how they plan to use their new found skills and knowledge to support an individual, a team or even a society.
The Startup Acceleration Scholarship will be awarded to 15 new businesses with proven scaling potential as well as a mission to create a positive impact on the world.
“The Google For Startups team is extremely excited to partner with AstroLabs to continue their mission of developing entrepreneurial talent and growing the digital ecosystem in the MENA region. We believe in AstroLabs’ mission and know that these scholarship programs will enable individuals and startup companies to get the training and skills necessary for them to succeed.”
Justin Nabozna, Partnerships Manager, Google For Startups
We are encouraging the top tech talent of the region that may have lost their jobs during this crisis to start their own companies! AstroLabs is committing AED 240K in grants to support these entrepreneurs to quickly and easily launch their new ventures at a cheaper price and at the most vibrant tech hubs in Dubai and Riyadh. We are also offering direct mentorship from our founders Louis Lebbos and Muhammed Mekki, our COO Roland Daher as well as our amazing network of mentors and industry experts.
Louis is personally committing to be first investor in at least one of the startups that gets traction by Q4 and a couple others in 2021. He will be calling on other investors in the ecosystem to join in and support this group that will build the next wave of tech startups in the MENA region.
