Chinese multinational technology company Huawei has opened a one-stop-shop for startups and developers, marking the company’s first such initiative in the UAE region.

Through this initiative, Huawei aims to empower innovative entrepreneurs in the region to scale and grow by accessing advanced capabilities and enabling technologies.

Huawei will kick off this project by hosting a range of workshops, programs, and one-to-one interactions during the HUAWEI Innovation Week, which will be held in June, at DIFC Innovation Hub. Huawei also aims to make its technologies and kits more accessible to developers to encourage and catalyze the region’s tech innovation ecosystem.

The one-stop-shop invites startups to experience hands-on training with on-site support throughout their tech journey.
