The most powerful infrastructure for entrepreneurs and inventors
At Hi2, we want to empower Dubai as the entrepreneurial capital of the MENA region by helping entrepreneurs start a business with strategy establishment and tangible growth.
Foster locally driven businesses run by Emirati entrepreneurs, by working with committed entrepreneurs on testing the viability of their business idea, in order to actualize it, and providing them with a space and on-going support to sustain their growth.
Our incubation process is designed for business execution. It is engineered to drive the entrepreneur towards implementing his/her business plan.
We help you first test your business idea with real customers, suppliers, and stakeholders, refine the value proposition, price, and costs, and then scale it up. We emphasize execution, ensuring that you establish the right milestones for your business. As a resident or virtual incubate, you will have continuous access to intellectual support from advisors and mentors. We welcome everybody to HI2 to assess and participate in our incubation process.
