UAE-based HR Tech Startup, Workfam, was officially awarded the highly esteemed ‘UAE Startup Unicorn’ by The Startup Network this month. The Unicorn Battle, which took place across 27 countries, shortlisted 12 UAE startups to participate in the largest online startup event.
The day kicked off with a panel discussion of experts from the venture market. They shared their own experiences, talked about the world’s current investment trends, and provided valuable advice. Following the discussion, each startup had 3 minutes to deliver their elevator pitch to investors, representatives of venture and seed-funds, heads of incubation and accelerator programs, as well as the owners and top managers of leading companies. The judges scored each startup based on their growth and investment potential.
Workfam ranked the highest average score and was awarded the UAE Unicorn 2020. The Dubai based HR Tech Startup, along with 49 other startups from around the globe, were then invited to participate at the 3-day Unicorn Cup Finals. Cameron Collins, Workfam’s founder comments “Investors recognize that companies globally are turning to HR Software, as they begin to roll out long term remote work policies. As most companies have already adopted basic online communication tools, they are now looking to invest in Enterprise Solutions that help them retain high levels of employee engagement, happiness and wellbeing.”
