Kyriacos Charalambides, Partner, Fast 50 Middle East & Cyprus Program Leader, said in the report’s foreword: “The region’s ecosystem is significantly growing and deserves to be highlighted through programs such as ours. UAE's technology start-up ecosystem, particularly in Dubai, has experienced significant growth due to government reforms and policies promoting innovation. The country has established itself as a regional leader in this field, with abundant funding and investment. Dubai has emerged as a crucial destination for ambitious entrepreneurs in the MENA region, solidifying its position as a dynamic regional hub.”

He added, “Cyprus also has a growing economy supporting start-ups in various tech sectors, with a focus on attracting investors and entrepreneurs through initiatives like tax incentives and funding opportunities. The government and private sector are working together to establish the island as a top

destination for tech talent, building on its tangible and intangible infrastructure whilst supporting

accelerators, incubators, research institutions and the emerging VC space.”
