We are very thrilled to announce that we won the coveted Startup of the Year award at the Arabian Business StartUp Awards last night! Eureeca was nominated for two awards last evening, Digital Business of the Year and Startup of the Year.
Up against key players in the Middle Eastern Startup ecosystem, we are humbled and very grateful for the win. Our friends, family, investors and entrepreneurs are who keep us going.
Selected by the judges for our innovative and social-minded approach to helping small businesses receive vital funding, we have helped businesses from across two continents and the Middle East attract investment in exchange for equity, helping many home-grown brands to expand around the region.
Speaking at the event, editor of Arabian Business StartUp magazine, Neil King, said: “To have so many big names here tonight, not only as winners but as nominees too, is testament to the strength of the start-up, SME and entrepreneurial scene in the UAE.
“We could have easily picked several winners for each category, such is the quality of the businesses, ideas and individuals that we are lucky to have in the Emirates, and we hope that these awards have done justice to recognising their importance and innovation.
“These are the people and companies who really drive the economy, create the jobs, and develop the ideas, and we are proud to be able to congratulate every one of them for their incredible contribution.”
To everyone who’s been following us since our launch, thank you for your support!
