Islamic lifestyle bootcamp first of more to come in Dubai’s Islamic economy
A first-of-its-kind Islamic lifestyle mini bootcamp aimed at supporting start-ups and entrepreneurs in the sector will be the first of more similar initiatives for the Islamic economy.
The bootcamp was run by the Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA), with the support of the DIEDC and took place 12-16 November at the Dubai Technology Entrepreneur Centre (DTEC). It was organised by Rainmaking Innovation, the umbrella company of the global network of start-up accelerators, Startup MENA and Startupbootcamp.
DIEDC’s initial strategy at its establishment in 2013 rested on seven pillars: Islamic finance; halal industry; standards and certification; family-friendly tourism; digital infrastructure; Islamic arts; and fashion and design. The refreshed 2017-2020 strategy now streamlines the last four sectors into a dedicated Islamic lifestyle pillar.
The aim of the bootcamp is not profit but about empowering young start-ups with the required skillsets that in return could boost growth across the Islamic economy sectors.
DIEDC hopes more start-ups will want to travel or move to Dubai to expand and operate their business.
DTEC offers subsidies to start-ups operating in Islamic economy industries, and Christensen said the centre is growing to include more offerings.
