Sharjah, UAE – Sharjah Research, Technology and Innovation Park (SRTIP) and SoiLAB are pleased to announce the launch of the SoiLAB Startup Boot Camp, a pioneering initiative designed to empower the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs. The program is located at SoiLAB’s SRTIP HQ and is part of the burgeoning ecosystem that provides the best launch pad for businesses in the region. It represents the highly anticipated sequel to the widely successful “Innovate for the Future Hackathon” from earlier in 2023. The program also demonstrates SRTIP’s broader commitment to empowering and supporting promising pioneers, ensuring they can transform their prototypes into thriving small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that generate substantial revenue.
The SoiLAB Startup Boot Camp is a six-week intensive program offering early-stage startups a unique environment to refine and scale their ideas. Participants, selected based on the viability of their Minimum Viable Product (MVP) or proof of concept, will have access to an immersive 8-day training session from July 10th to July 13th and then from July 17th to July 20th.
This unique training program provides entrepreneurs the tools, resources, and guidance they need to excel. It features hands-on interaction with expert mentors and engineers, networking opportunities with successful startups and potential investors, and access to cutting-edge technologies and workspaces at SoiLAB.
Following the training, participants will embark on a four-week mentorship program, commencing on July 23rd and ending on August 20th. This program provides one-on-one sessions with seasoned professionals to help refine strategies, upscale MVPs, and gain valuable insights into startup entrepreneurship.
SRTIP CEO Hussein Al Mahmoudi says, “The Startup Boot Camp is an integral part of SRTIP’s mission to provide the perfect launch pad for the region’s aspiring innovators and entrepreneurs. This is an amazing opportunity for participants to gain access to our world-class facilities and tap into our ecosystem designed to help them succeed; we’re excited to see how they thrive in this environment”.
The program will then culminate in selecting three winners who will receive additional resources and exclusive prizes, supporting their innovations’ further development and launch.
