A-hub is a ICESCO powered Global Startup Accelerator to support Member States tech economy by igniting 150+ new scale- ups by the end of 2025.
Our mission is to solve real world gaps and unlock Member States’ scientific and tech potential by projecting ICESCO as a leading regional hub for tech scale-ups.
The scope:
The goal of this session is to bring together people from diverse backgrounds working in the technology and innovation industry across unstable geographies to discuss the current situation and future plans related to funding overlooked talent in emerging economies.
While large and fast-growing ecosystems such as Silicon Valley, London, Dubai, and Berlin are oversaturated with venture capital and funding resources concentrated in a handful of cities and countries, the rest of the ecosystem suffers from low access to funding.
Wars, political instability, inadequate infrastructure, low internet access all are seen as major obstacles to accessing finance in emerging and unstable economies.
Expected outcomes: developing of workable proposals and solutions in discussion with panelists working at the grassroots level with overlooked talent.
