Dubai-based in5, an enabling platform launched by TECOM Group for start-ups in tech, design and media, will showcase seven of its top tech start-ups to GITEX Global 2022, organized at the Dubai World Trade Centre between 10 – 14 October. 

The short-listed start-ups, which include businesses advancing cloud-based workflow automation, consumer electronic subscriptions, media streaming and targeting services and more, represent the scope of in5’s entrepreneurial community.

The incubator will bring its nearly decade-long experience to the event with the aim of promoting innovation, developing talent, and facilitating business growth.

Since its inception, in5 has incubated more than 500 businesses, a quarter of which are owned and operated by female entrepreneurs, nearly twice as high as the regional average of women-owned SMEs, according to the World Bank.
