Applications are open until June 1st, 2024, inviting women-led ventures to demonstrate their innovation and business savvy to join a powerful network of changemakers

May 2024 – Sherpa Communications is proud to continue its tradition of supporting community-focused initiatives by extending an invitation to women-led businesses to apply and be part of the TiE Women 2024 initiative. On May 16th, 2024, the Dubai chapter of The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) officially launched the fifth annual TiE Women MENA Program 2024. This empowering initiative is designed to support and elevate women entrepreneurs across the MENA region. The program now includes five categories: UAE, Emirati, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and the rest of the Middle East.

The competition kicks off with an application phase open until June 1st, 2024. Through several rounds of screening, an unbiased jury with TiE Dubai Charter members will select the top innovative ideas from each of the five categories. The selected finalists will showcase their ventures in five rigorous pitch competitions. The winners of these competitions prep for the MENA finals, previously hosted at the North Star Expand at GITEX. At every stage, the program will include mentorship sessions with renowned and experienced industry leaders, financial advisory services, strategy coaching, workshops on practical business planning, an online global accelerator program and tips to nail the perfect investor pitch. The competition will conclude with the Global Finals in December 2024.

The program seeks to create equal opportunities for women entrepreneurs to excel and contribute significantly to their economies. This year’s theme continues to highlight the role of women in business, with a focus on nurturing their skills through a structured framework. Participating startups undergo several stages of development, from initial application, through intensive 1:1 mentorship, to pitching their ideas in front of a seasoned panel of judges at the MENA and Global finals.

Global and regional winners will receive prizes and recognition for their accomplishments. In the past, winners have received equity-free cash prizes of up to $50,000 at the Global finals and up to $25,000 at the MENA finals in Dubai, and have gone on to achieve much more.

Women founders or co-founders from any industry who hold at least 33% equity, either individually or jointly, in businesses up to seven years old that operate from or for the MENA region are encouraged to apply. Application details and submission can be accessed through the official TiE Dubai website.
