India-based diversity-focused startup network, Encubay is expanding its operation to Dubai with a vision to build a gender-inclusive ecosystem for women entrepreneurs, industry experts, investors, corporates, and all the other key stakeholders.

With the expansion to Dubai, Encubay targets to create a gender-diverse startup ecosystem, with the objective of leveling the playing field for female founders.

The Encubay Dubai Chapter targets to develop a community of female founders and funders and help them access the networks via Encubay through a series of skilling sessions, networking events and conferences. Further, the expansion will create a trade corridor between Dubai and India, which will help startups to strengthen their market presence in both countries.

“Our vision at Encubay has always been to level the playing field for female founders globally as we are confident that women will forefront the next phase of innovation and change for the world. I was in awe of all the female founders and investors who warmly welcomed Encubay and myself to Dubai. We will be actively working towards launching more initiatives to foster the growth of female-founded ventures in Dubai and the UAE.”
