About SBC Qatar SportsTech 2021
Our vision is to transform Doha into one of the leading sports hubs and contribute to Qatar’s diversification goals through the facilitation of corporate startup collaboration. Qatar SportsTech is initiated by Qatar Development Bank, powered by Startupbootcamp and supported by leading organizations, such as the Supreme Committe for Delivery & Legacy, Qatar Stars League, beIN Media Group, Qatar Financial Centre, Aspire Zone Foundation, MBK Holding and the Ministry of Commerce and Industry
Following a rigorous recruitment process and Selection Day, 10 startups are invited to participate in the intensive Accelerator program in Aspire Zone, the beating heart of sports in Qatar. Each startup is incentivized and invited to register their company with 100% ownership in Qatar. QST invests $150K, of which $40K is in cash and $110K in in-kind value.
Our 12-week program has been created to develop the entrepreneurship journey and gives startups the resources necessary to accelerate their growth. Through our essential partnerships, the startups engage in specialized workshops, one-on-one mentoring sessions, meetings with a wide network of potential investors and events (such as Demo Day).
