Tech in the Middle East

Driving digital innovation

AstroLabs Dubai – the region’s only Google-partnered tech centre

As part of the drive to fast-forward the region’s digital economy, we have partnered with AstroLabs Dubai, the only Google-partnered tech centre in the Middle East North Africa (MENA) area. Together we have created a special licence enabling start-ups to work in a collaborative community of like-minded entrepreneurs with zero upfront costs. The community already includes more than 70 start-ups.

Accessible 24/7, the tech centre includes coding facilities for programmers, a mobile device development lab and training room to host AstroLabs Academy workshops in analytics, big data, adwords, digital marketing, UX/UI design and start-up development.
