FinTech Hive at DIFC

Established in 2004, the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) has grown to become a leading financial hub for the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region. Positioned between the global financial centres of New York, London, Singapore and Hong Kong, and home to over 21,000 individuals from over 1,500 financial and professional services companies, the Centre provides access to top firms looking to access the high-growth MEASA markets.

Reflecting the energetic and entrepreneurial environment of Dubai, FinTech Hive at DIFC links global innovation across three other FinTech hubs, in New York, London and Hong Kong.

Custom built, linking cutting edge and innovative financial services technology to the MEASA markets, the accelerator – FinTech Hive provides an ideal launchpad to access and serve the region.


Industry progression requires significant co-operation between traditional players and FinTech firms, along with the ability to anticipate changes and adapt the working model of the industry. FinTech Hive at DIFC differs from other accelerators across the globe, as both FinTech and financial institutions are housed under one roof. Major banks and financial institutions from across the globe have set up in DIFC to undertake business in the region. We believe that innovation would be driven when talent from inside and outside the ecosystem work in harmony to create the ideal product. This self-contained environment is an ideal nurturing ground for creating and developing an exceptional FinTech hub that meets the needs of the financial services industry, stakeholders and customers alike.
