2020 pushed us to improvement

Welcome to our brand new online showcase! We’re excited to show you our 5th cycle startups. 

This year, we are celebrating our 5th anniversary. If there’s one thing that hasn’t changed over the last 5 years, it is our passion to constantly evolve, experiment, and reinvent ourselves to adapt to an ever-changing business environment. 

 

Due to the global pandemic, our 5th year was unique and different, causing us to think fast and move fast. The tech industry faced lots of shakes and changes, and we at the Hybrid, as we expect from our founders, have made the adjustments needed to make the best out of this period. 

We are pleased to present our first international showcase, where you will get to meet our 5th cycle startups as well as our alumni and hear their stories. 

 

We are confident we have produced a great remote batch, and after working with our founders for the past few months, watching the way they've managed to reinvent, adjust, and adapt to today's reality, I can confidently say that they’re more ready for their entrepreneurial journey than ever before.

 

The Hybrid is devoted to empowering early-stage Arab-led startups to become successful companies that change the world for the better. I truly believe that our mission these days is more important than ever before. 

 

And we couldn’t do it without our amazing partners, managing team, mentors, and supporters. Thank you very much for your support throughout the year, It wouldn’t have been possible without you.

 

Best,
