Intelak is a hub that aims to inspire and develop teams to become part of the conversation that is happening globally on the future of travel and aviation.
For the third cohort, the incubation program is looking for teams with up to five members, who will examine how a particular travel moment makes us feel - from home to airport to the skies.
Submit an innovative idea to make travel for everyone simpler, better, and overall more fun.
Selected startups will receive business development workshops and mentoring, 50,000 AED seed funding and a space to realize their travel or aviation related startup and take it to the next level.
Here’s how the program will go: The top 20 teams will be enrolled in an intensive one-week boot camp that will train them through workshops on design thinking, financial modelling, marketing, and building an investor pitch. The culmination of this one week will be a pitch day, after which four teams will be chosen as winners.
Each of the winning teams will receive a cash prize of up to AED 50,000, to be distributed at key milestones, and will be enrolled in the Intelak Incubator.
The incubator, located in DTEC, will be a three-month, intensive program. It will consist of structured modules, mentorship, and office hours to support the continued development of each team's winning idea. It is important to note that the teams will retain copyright of their ideas, no equity will be taken from the startups in exchange for the cash prize.
At the conclusion of the program, the winning teams will be given the opportunity to pitch their ideas to angel investors and VCs for potential collaboration, or even investment.
The participants may also have co-creation or employment opportunities with the Emirates Group, GE, or Etisalat Digital.
Deadline for applying is on January 6, 2018.
