The Cribb Academy to offer training courses to entrepreneurs

A newly-established educational facility in Dubai is aimed at reaching out to more than 500 entrepreneurs and business leaders every year.

The Cribb Academy to offer training courses to entrepreneurs

The Cribb, an incubator based in Al Quoz Dubai, has recently opened its in-house training courses to the region’s most promising entrepreneurs and corporates.

The Cribb Academy is also set to offer one-on-one project mentoring for entrepreneurs from the idea stage to scaling a business, and for corporates from rethinking to reinventing their innovation models.

The academy will be carrying out over 30 major entrepreneurial, innovation and technical courses from best-in-class innovation trainers.

Ahmed Abdulwahab, head of The Cribb Academy, said: "The Cribb Academy is building, expanding and sharing our experience to people from all walks of life. The objective of the Academy is to fill the learning gap by providing impactful entrepreneurial, innovational and technical courses.”

“Unlike traditional training courses, the Cribb Academy is focused on practical implementation and to develop and deliver training courses that are customized to the MENA environment.”

The four major tracks have courses that are delivered over half day or full day, including:

  • Entrepreneur/Intrapreneur track – designed for entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs in the idea stage considering to start a new business.
  • StartUp biz track – designed for start-ups looking to scale existing business models and fast track growth.
  • StartUp tech track – designed for entrepreneurs looking to scale their technology by leveraging the latest tech trends and insights.
  • Corporate innovation track – designed for corporations and government institutions looking to rethink and reinvent their products and business models.

The Cribb was founded in September 2013 by Innovation 360, an innovation consultancy founded by Kamal Hassan.

In 2013 Innovation 360 also partnered with DP World to form TURN8, an accelerator programme targeting start-ups in digital health, education, fintech, and cloud computing, and more. TURN8 recently launched a new $60m venture capital fund to support start-ups in technology innovation.
