TECOM Group is continuing to bolster its native Dubai's entrepreneurial ecosystem's media sector. In 2014, the Group announced a whopping AED4.5 billion (US$1.2 billion) to accelerate startups in Dubai's media sector, and the company has since been very busy using that money wisely. Its latest announcement could be most exciting for entrepreneurs in media: a total of AED60 million ($16.3 million) has been allocated to set up in5 Media, a new startup accelerator and mentoring and skill building space in Dubai.

The space will include co-working spaces, recording studios, and other facilities that "treps in media will appreciate, and it is set to launch in Q2 2016. Of course, this isn't TECOM Group's first endeavor to incubate and accelerate startups and entrepreneurs- in 2013, TECOM Group launched In5 Hub in Dubai Internet City to incubate, accelerate, and support tech startups.
