About the program

This partnership builds on Oman’s growing reputation in the cybersecurity domain in the region, as well as the Digital Hub’s high profile initiatives in the local cyber ecosystem. It will connect the Sas Center for Entrepreneurship, its entrepreneurs and mentors, to a leading UK-based cybersecuirty accelerator progam and international mentors and experts.
