Qatar Science & Technology Park’s (QSTP) has collaborated with 500 Startups to offer the MENA Dojo Program. The program is a six-week investment program that provides intensive one-on-one training and mentoring to help already existing companies funnel, increase traffic generation and grow their business. The MENA Dojo Program’s methodology focuses on customer acquisition, growth hacking, distribution, referral marketing and retargeting, content marketing and SEO, UX and conversion optimization, and pitching to investors. The program is staffed with internationally renowned growth mentors onsite at all times. Mentors challenge participants and work closely with them to track their company’s metrics and progress, and help them to uncover new channels and identify untapped opportunities.
The program runs once a year, arranged in two modules across a six week period, and accepts a limited number of tech startups that have previously raised funding from other investors, but are not preparing to scale up and raise their Series A round.
