Dotnxt is one of Oman's leading programs in frontier technologies. In the second addition of the program in 2022, ALJABR had an important role in facilitating and developing the 3rd phase of the program which was a 6-week bootcamp.
The 2nd cohort of the program consisted of 75 participants, these were turned into 15 teams for the bootcamp. Through an intense 1-week sprint and a 4-week accelerator program, these teams were thoroughly developed from an ideation stage all the way to having an MVP & being able to pitch in front of investors. The Sprint was developed and executed by several members of Al Jabr's team with the aim of refining each team's idea & ensuring they had a solid foundation before entering the accelerator program.
The participants went through several workshops during the accelerator delivered by the University of Salford and Al Jabr. Each team also had an assigned mentor from Al Jabr's wide ecosystem. Due to Al Jabr's commitment to the continuity of these teams Al Jabr will follow up with all Dotnxt teams for 6 months to ensure they have all the necessary tools to launch their concept.
