Dhiraagu together with Sparkhub, have organized the first Startup Grind event for young entrepreneurs in the Maldives. Startup Grind is the largest independent startup community, that nurtures startup communities through events featuring successful local founders, innovators, educators and investors who share lessons learned on the road to building great companies – to inspire, educate and connect startup communities.
The first series of Startup Grind in Malè was introduced at the event held at Dhiraagu Head Office on 16th November and the speaker was Mr Eedham Rasheed, Founder & CEO of Hologo World. The session was moderated by Ali Haris, from Sparkhub, the Chapter Director for Startup Grind x Malè.
At the event, Eedham shared his journey and the lessons on the road for startups. Hologo Education is an Augmented Reality (AR) based mobile and interactive educational platform which is marketed towards students, teachers and schools. An application that was developed by a team comprising entirely of Maldivians, Hologo was launched on 23 April 2018, at the BETT Middle East and Africa conference.
The full video of the fireside chat with Eedham Rasheed was uploaded on Dhiraagu social media channels. Sparkhub is a team of young bright Maldivians who work to foster the startup culture in the Maldives.
