TURN8, the seed accelerator initiative founded by DP World that encourages entrepreneurship and innovation has selected nine new startups for investment as part of round five of its programme. Some 23 startup companies at a market value of US $30 million have been established since the beginning of Turn8. The latest round follows a selection process to identify startups that have a promising business concept and who have had some experience testing the market. The international reach covers global markets with participants from the UAE (Dubai), Spain, Russia and Chile, the first South American startup applicant. Teams have already been flown down to Dubai and will soon begin the four-month mentorship programme to refine their business idea and gain practical training on how to run a successful enterprise backed by seed funding of US $30,000 to help them develop their projects.
