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.
“Following a global search for the most suitable location for IDI and OurCrowd’s new investment center, Abu Dhabi was by far the most fitting destination,”
said Jon Medved, Founder and CEO of OurCrowd.
“IDI is the culmination of OurCrowd’s strategy to revolutionise its fintech platform with AI functionality across the board.
We are recruiting the best talent from within the UAE and across the globe and to be a transformative catalyst for the AI ecosystem in Abu Dhabi,”
said Dr Hasanat Dewan, Chief Innovation Officer of OurCrowd.
