The Logistics Startup Challenge will seek entrants across six key growth pillars for mobility and transport logistics
The global integrated logistics solutions provider, Asyad Group, in partnership with Hypermotion Dubai is giving innovation-driven entrepreneurs a platform to shine and compete for a life-changing prize of US$50,000.
To help foster sector growth, Asyad Group, along with its official technology partner, Omantel, and Hypermotion Dubai, have created the ‘Logistics Startup Challenge’, to be held in a special zone designed to harness the potential of burgeoning new companies, entrepreneurs, and ideas at Dubai Exhibition Centre (DEC) from 2 – 4 November.
The Logistics Startup Challenge will seek entrants across six key growth pillars for mobility and transport logistics, namely artificial intelligence, cyber security, robotics, logistics, smart mobility and drones, and will include a pitch contest, where entrepreneurs will present their solutions to an audience of regional and international investors.
Abdulrahman Al Hatmi, Asyad Group CEO, said: “Together with Omantel’s digital leadership, we are promoting best practices in the digital sphere, providing an unprecedented opportunity for entrepreneurs to tap into valuable expertise and ultimately, funnel it into the sector. Our challenge is just the start.”
“Home to some of the region’s largest logistics companies, the GCC is a global leader in creating a meaningful startup ecosystem and has fostered growth in this segment for a number of years,” commented Simon Mellor, CEO at Messe Frankfurt Middle East, the organiser of Hypermotion Dubai. Hypermotion Dubai is expected to attract high-level C-suite participation from international, regional and local government entities and private organisations to chart the future of logistics, mobility, infrastructure and transport ecosystems.
