Sheraa presents engaging showcase at ‘Expand North Star 2023’ - Business - Economy and Finance

The Sharjah Entrepreneurship Centre (Sheraa) had an engaging presence at GITEX Global’s ‘Expand North Star 2023’ event, the world’s largest startup event, highlighting ten excelling startups that have benefited from its support and guidance. It also hosted a series of informative workshops and discussions led by industry leaders, Sheraa’s Experts in Residence, and community members.

The showcase of SULMI, Cycled Technologies, YSpot, YH&H, Leukeather, Remal IoT, Esaal Solutions, Pulse IoT Technologies, FortyGuard, and AR Engineering at Sheraa’s exhibition stand provided an inspiring example of the diversity and innovation within the startup ecosystem nurtured by Sheraa. These companies span an impressive spectrum of industries, reflecting the depth of talent and entrepreneurial spirit in Sharjah. From pioneering clean energy solutions to addressing sustainable materials, and education, these startups demonstrated the potential for growth and impact across various priority sectors.

Commenting on their participation at Expand North Star, Abdelrazak Al Sharif, Head of Programmes at Sheraa, stated, “These founders have truly stood out in their journey within the Sheraa ecosystem, and we are proud of the progress they have made in turning their innovations into reality. The Sheraa model, built on nurturing and guidance, is developed to empower these individuals and businesses, who have proven to be an example of our mission to foster entrepreneurial talent and innovation in the region.”

From SULMI’s groundbreaking work in developing Electric Bikes, to Cycled Technologies’ leadership in smart waste management and recycling, these startups exemplify the spirit of innovation that Sheraa seeks to foster. YSpot’s mission to empower youth and YH&H’s innovative product design are aligned with Sheraa’s vision of empowering the next generation of industry leaders.

Additionally, the eco-conscious and ethical alternative offered by Leukeather and the pioneering IoT development by Remal IoT represent the sustainability and innovation goals that Sheraa stands for. With startups like Esaal Solutions, Pulse IoT Technologies, FortyGuard, and AR Engineering, Sheraa’s vision of transforming industries and creating a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem is being realised, one innovative venture at a time.

These engaging sessions served as a vital platform for knowledge sharing, creating a space where invaluable insights could be discussed by industry leaders, Sheraa Experts in Residence (EiR) and community members, providing inspiration and guidance for the attending audience.
