MIT Enterprise Forum Pan Arab and Hub71 have partnered to create the Hub71 MENA Growth Competition exclusively for MITEF Pan Arab Alumni, who were selected as semifinalists for the past 3 years (editions 10, 11 and 12th).

Hub71 MENA Growth Competition, powered by MIT Enterprise Forum Pan Arab, is a competition that aims at finding the best tech startups to join a global ecosystem strategically located in Abu Dhabi Global Market Square on Al Maryah Island, offering an international network that will come together to enable startup success, innovation and growth opportunities.

The program will select the top 3 startups exclusively from the MIT Enterprise Forum Arab Startup Competition alumni to move to Abu Dhabi and take Hub71 as one of their main headquarters, offering subsidized living, office space, healthcare packages, 5-year entrepreneur visas, access to huge market potential and capital.
