We're in the Dubai Future Accelerator

12 February 2017 - ObjectTech at DFA

We’re happy to announce that ObjectTech are taking part in the second cohort of the Dubai Future Accelerators (DFA).

We’ll be working with the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigner Affairs (GDRFA) on a very exciting project which aims to introduce 100% biometric borders, so people can get off their plane, collect their bags and be in a taxi 10 minutes after landing.

This is an ambitious proposal and we’re excited to be here demonstrating our self-sovereign identity solution as the best means of automating the visa-through-to-entry system.

The Government of Dubai has aims to be the first blockchain-based and fully-digitised government on earth, and the DFA is a means of linking Government Departments directly with innovative startups with new solutions to long term problems.

Stay tuned for more updates on our experience with the programme and Dubai!
