About the accelerator
TURN8 is a remarkable collaboration between enterprise and innovators, launched by DP World to foster a global entrepreneurial and innovation culture. The aim is to inject entrepreneurial know-how into the region and accelerate commercialise-able “ideas to market.” This revolutionary program strategically scouts the globe for early stage ideas and concepts that can be refined and brought to market through the TURN8 seed accelerator. The program begins with a rigorous online and event-based international scouting campaign, followed by a 120-day funded “Rapid Fire” Business Modelling and Prototyping seed accelerator, and finally an Investor Demo Day. Extensive follow-on support is provided for graduates.
