How to launch your Doha tech startup in 15 days

Are you a budding entrepreneur from Qatar or the MENA region? Then here is your chance to turn your business dreams into reality. Qatar Science & Technology Park (QSTP), part of Qatar Foundation Research, Development, and Innovation, is inviting university students the region to apply for the third edition of its Arab Innovation Academy (AIA) – the largest entrepreneurship boot-camp of its kind in the region.

QSTP has collaborated with the European Innovation Academy (EIA) which is a hands-on entrepreneurship programme. It introduces participants to experiential learning where the students can easily learn to develop and launch their very own tech startup in a real marketplace with customer feedback.

The EIA is the world’s largest extreme entrepreneurship program, offering aspiring techpreneurs the skills required to launch a startup in just 15 days.

More than 30 countries participated in the first two editions of the programme.

The first and second editions of the two-week startup boot-camp featured 127 and 196 entrepreneurs, respectively, from Qatar and abroad, making up a total of 34 teams.

The second edition was notable for the participation from several young Arab women, many of whom have gone on to launch successful startups.

The upcoming edition is even more exciting thanks to the opportunity to gain insights and guidance from leading Silicon Valley mentors and experts from the world’s top corporations, who will help the aspiring participants launch their startups and market their tech products in Qatar and beyond.

The deadline to apply is September 30, 2019. The AIA will kick off on January 7, 2020, and will run until January 20.
