Over the course of the last 4 months, and through the 3 stages of the programme: XStart, XSolve, and XScale, the second cohort of the Wamda X Fellows have been working on growing their businesses with the help of our programme growth team, Wamda’s seasoned mentors, and the Wamda team as well as many more industry experts.
The current cohort received 650 applications and will be graduating 11 startups next week. The startups will be presenting solutions across industries such as foodtech, sportstech, and Software as a Service (SaaS), fintech, among others with representation from across the region including the UAE, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and Tunisia.
The Global Grad Show Track, an innovation and social impact acceleration programme for graduate projects, ran as an extension of the second cohort of the Wamda X programme in partnership with the Investment Government of Dubai, A.R.M Holding, and C3. The track included 4 startups from around the globe, with representation from countries including Malaysia, India, Pakistan and Italy.
The second batch of Fellows are ready to reveal what they've been working on, and they will be pitching for investment in an online event over two consecutive days on Wednesday, April 29, and Thursday, April 30, at 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM for both days.
The online event will feature an introduction from Fadi Ghandour, the Wamda X startup pitches, with Q&A intermissions for your questions to the founders.
