Huawei’s Eco-development department has launched the first edition of its program to support Startups in the Middle East and Africa region. This first-of-its-kind initiative is designed to assist regional companies that have recently launched their mobile app and to help them grow their base of users through Huawei’s official app distribution platform, AppGallery.
After releasing their apps on AppGallery and leveraging Huawei Mobile Service Core (HMS), the selected startups will benefit from the Huawei ecosystem team’s extended support. It includes support in many areas such as technology integration to deliver the best quality app to users, free of charge feature placements on AppGallery and directly onto Huawei devices to boost their user acquisition, and finally additional support to run dedicated campaigns through the Huawei ecosystem.
Huawei’s Eco-development team has selected the first 15 mobile app startups from various categories to join the program that is starting this week. The main selection criteria is based on the startup’s HQ location (Middle East and Africa based companies), the stage of business life cycle (companies that are still relatively early in their development), and the users’ demands (apps with a specific value proposition from targeted categories, in demand from Huawei’s users).
The first edition of this initiative will include mobile apps from popular categories among users, such as shopping, education, social, sport & health, finance, food & drink, navigation & transport. From April onwards the following apps will be available to download from HUAWEI AppGallery for Huawei’s users: Baaz, Basket.jo, Breadfast, Wajeez, FittiCoin, Homzmart, Invygo, Konnash, Okadoc, Munch:on, Petra Ride, Swan, TiLa Online Shopping, WaffarX, and Chefaa.
This new initiative places Huawei as an active player that supports the digital transformation and reaching operational excellence of industries and enterprises and adheres to the global “platform + ecosystem” strategy that fosters teaming up with app developers to meet today’s end users’ needs.
