Participating in the DIFC Fintech Hive Accelerator Programme allowed us to fine-tune our product for the region and introduced us to all the key stakeholders in financial regulation. Our current client relationships in the UAE all stem from sessions organised under its auspices.

I doubt that Sarwa would have worked without the DIFC Fintech Hive. It's that simple.

The DIFC Fintech Hive created a new model for fintech startups, helping us acquire early customers, figure out who to hire, raise our seed round and obtain an innovative regulatory license that's fit for our tech and business model. The Hive's leadership and partners were closely involved and crucially helpful. Thank you Raja and Shereen for building and growing the Fintech ecosystem.

Addenda simply would not have worked without FinTech Hive. We applied to the accelerator with a demo and walked out with an established name in the market.
