Israel’s OurCrowd Launches AI Hub at ADGM’s Hub 71 With ADIO

Israeli venture investing platform OurCrowd announced plans to invest US$60 million in its Abu Dhabi operations with a new office and AI tech hub, enabled by the Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO).

The two new initiatives, which were announced during Abu Dhabi Finance Week (ADFW), will see OurCrowd expanding its team based at Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) to 60 over the next four years.

The new AI tech hub is established as Integrated Data Intelligence (IDI), a commercial company based at ADGM’s Hub71, and will develop AI solutions for business.

IDI will be headed by Dr Hasanat Dewan, who previously headed the banking and financial services digital engineering practice at IT consulting firm Cognizant.

OurCrowd Arabia, which incorporated in ADGM in 2021, is also establishing a new venture capital investment centre in Abu Dhabi to manage deals for its existing platform and cater to emerging markets.

It is the second Israeli company to announce during the ADFW that it has joined the ADIO’s Innovation Programme after credit automation platform Liquidity Group.
