Here are the 11 technology startups that have been selected for the third cohort of the Accelerator - five of which are either women-led or women co-founded businesses:
“Our program has grown over the last year, thanks to the 22 talented startups that have joined us from all over the region in the first two cohorts, and to the hundreds of mentors that have contributed to the success of this program. We’re excited to apply all the lessons in this coming edition, and help the participating startups scale their solutions for local challenges using advanced technologies”, said Salim Abid, Google’s Regional Lead of Developer Ecosystem in MENA.
The accelerator program will run virtually starting this week till the end of March.
