High-tech start-ups in Dubai to boom

The number of high-tech businesses launching in the UAE is forecast to quickly rise through 2015, encouraged by strong internet use and political stability, reports the UAE national.

About 96 technology-focused start-ups were expected to launch from the Emirates this year, and this was forecast to rise to 185 each year over the next three years, according to a report by Dubai Internet City and the consultancy Frost & Sullivan.

Aside from start-ups, Dubai has also attracted some of the world’s largest high-tech businesses. Both Facebook and LinkedIn launched regional offices at Dubai Internet City this year.

The prospects are bright for technology graduates and professionals looking for employment in Dubai’s technology sector.

Also, if you have a great  idea for an IT business or a start-up, the Majid Bin Mohammed Innovation Center in5, an IT start-up incubator based in Dubai Internet City, can provide advice on how to get started.
