And the GCC Pitch Challenge Winners are…



Last week Sirdab Lab hosted Startup MENA’s GCC Pitch Challenge, and the experience was wonderful. Seeing startup founders experiencing one epiphany after another as they rotated between mentors is exciting, because it means that they’ll be able to make better decisions, find more realistic business models, and can work on their startup with renewed energy and enthusiasm.

We are proud of Dawrat and BoxIt Storage winning the Kuwait semi-finals, and they will be competing in the finals in Abu Dhabi at the end of April.

We wish both teams the very best.

At the end of March, Dubai will be hosting the 2015 Step Conference, where you’ll get a chance to listen to business leaders, as well as connect with designers, technologists, and game developers.

To book your tickets, head to the Step Conference site:

Here in Kuwait we’re celebrating the national holidays, and wish all citizens and residents of Kuwait a happy holiday. The Sirdab Lab team will be taking the weekend off, and we’ll be resuming our work on 1 March.
