The TURN8 seed accelerator

TURN8 seed accelerator program is designed to encourage innovative entrepreneurship worldwide, starting with Dubai. We look for people with ingenious ideas that can be refined and brought to market through a “seed accelerator”, a program that selects start-up teams with marketable ideas and supports them with funding, mentoring and training in exchange for a stake in any resulting business.
TURN8 holds two rounds a year, beginning with seeking innovative ideas through an online campaign and events in select countries. This is followed by a 120-day funded seed accelerator where teams perfect their business model and develop a Minimum Viable Product. For those who graduate, follow-on support is offered to help them find additional investors.
