The Google for Entrepreneurs Exchange programme will be held in Dubai for the first time this December.

Running from 5-11 December, the programme will be organised and hosted by AstroLabs – a member of the global Tech Hub network of Google for Entrepreneurs, and the only Google-partnered hub in the Middle East.

Focusing on the travel and hospitality industry, the programme is supported by a number of sector leaders, including DTCM, Emirates, Jumeirah Group and Careem.

The application is open to start-up founders around the world who have developed, launched and already gained some initial traction for a tech product targeting the travel and hospitality sector.

Those wishing to apply need to be fluent in English and be able to spend the whole week in Dubai.

The organisers will cover certain expenses, including hotels, transportation for the programme, and lunch during the day.

In addition to practical training modules from mentors working on projects in the field, participants will also get behind-the-scenes tours of exclusive venues and operation centers in Dubai.

The deadline for application is noon on Wednesday, 14 October. For more information visit
