We’re excited to partner once again with Volkswagen Middle East for STEP 2019. The STEP X Mentor’s Corner will be hosted by Volkswagen with participating mentors and experts covering everything from skills and industry focus through 1-on-1 sessions and group roundtables. Booking will be coming soon so get your Startup Package to participate!
As part of Volkswagen’s vision to “Move People Forward”, this year we’ve partnered up to launch the first Volkswagen Mobility Challenge to find startup ideas that present solutions to mobility challenges we face everyday from parking to delivery. The challenge is an exciting program aimed at attracting young entrepreneurs with great ideas from across the UAE. The finalists will then go through a one-day bootcamp and pitch at STEP Conference 2019 to a live audience.
Winners will be flown out to Germany to attend the “Volkswagen Innovation Workshop” with Ideation:hub Berlin in April, 2019 AND challenge finalists will have the chance of a 6 months paid internship within Audi Volkswagen Middle East Company! So, if you think you have an idea, apply here now before February 3rd.
