Innovation 360’s co-working space, The Cribb, has reiterated its commitment to driving the UAE’s start-ups to new heights
Entrepreneurial ecosystem The Cribb is set to celebrate its first anniversary by hosting an evening of thought leader panels and networking on 15 September.
Since its inauguration last year, the Al Quoz-based facility, initially founded by Innovation 360 as a workspace for teams from i360accelerator and TURN8 start-up accelerators, has spawned several award-winning start-ups businesses.
The Cribb has recently become a regional host to a new $100 million investment fund from Fenox Venture Capital, which seeks to invest in seed, Series A and pre-IPO funding throughout the US, Asia and the Middle East.
During the past 12 months, The Cribb has also organised a number of events for entrepreneurs in the region such as Startup Corner, AngelHack Dubai, FailCon, and Seedstars World.
Speaking about the upcoming celebration, Kamal Hassan, founder of Innovation 360, i360accelerator and The Cribb, said: “It has always been our goal to become the most innovative and popular social hub in the Middle East, helping creative minds develop their ideas into viable businesses.
“After such a successful first year, I believe we are well on the way to achieving that dream.”
Managing director of i360accelerator, Mohamed Hamdy, added: "We plan to continue enriching the ecosystem of start-ups here in Dubai by launching initiatives such as a coding and development academy soon at The Cribb.”
