On Wednesday 22 of October, the Luxembourg Trade and Investment Office in Abu Dhabi organized a webinar in partnership with the Dubai Future Foundation (DFF) on the topic: ‘Bridging opportunities: Luxembourg and UAE’s startup and innovation ecosystem.’
Building up on the MoU signed between Luxinnovation and DFF in January 2020, this webinar contributed to enhance the United Arab Emirates and Luxembourg’s mutual understanding of each other’s startup and innovation environments by creating awareness and providing insights about both countries’ ecosystems. The panelists focused on the achievements, complementarities and ambitions of both countries and highlighted the multiple opportunities to foster cooperation between them.
To discuss this vast and fascinating topic, the Embassy and the Luxembourg Trade and Investment Office had the honour to host two high-level speakers: Faisal Al Hawi, Head of Incubators, Accelerators and Area 2071 at the Dubai Future Foundation and David Foy, Head of International Business Development in Digital Economy at Luxinnovation.
Welcoming and opening remarks were delivered by Sasha Baillie, CEO of Luxinnovation, and Amer Abdulraoof, Director of Special Projects at the Dubai Future Foundation. The Embassy and the LTIO would like to thank all the speakers for their inspiring and valuable presentations as well as for their contribution to the strengthening of mutual knowledge between the United Arab Emirates and Luxembourg.
