Sheraa opens applications for tech start ups to join its seed program
Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center's program could see tech start ups getting a cash grant of $10,000
The Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center (Sheraa) has announced it is looking to make tech startups seed ready
Seed start-ups are basically organisations looking to investors to fund their initiative. Sheera's program works by asking applicants to send a video pitch and they'll be assessed and scored by a panel of investors.
Pre-seeded comapnies are also invited to apply so they can accomplish milestones before they can apply for the seed program. Sheera will provide Pre-seed teams with tools & resources to help them build their business, this includes monthly coaching hours, legal office hours and a subsidized licensing package.
Companies that make the cut could get the opportunity to get cash grants up to $10,000, discounted licensing packages and access to Sheraa’s co-working space in the American University of Sharjah, University City.
Sheera's requirements are that teams must:
- Have a working minimum viable product
- Have a tech enabled and scalable startup
- Commit to the program and ideally be based in the UAE
