Abu Dhabi’s thriving Ecosystem as a launch pad to the MENA region !

Why this webinar ?

After the signature of a cooperation agreement last year, our objective is to make it operational and allow French companies to know more about Abu Dhabi’s ecosystem.
It is composed of several structures aiming at helping companies to develop and/or scale up in the United Arab Emirates and especially in Abu Dhabi.
Some of the key players will give you more detailed information about their structure and your development potential
