Governance in Tech
Aligning expectations between investors and Tech firms on Corporate
Governance capabilities that can be adopted across the various
development stages of Tech Firms
The primary objective of this newly launched programme is to shed light on the current corporate governance practices being adopted by technology businesses in the Gulf and to understand the corporate governance capabilities that will be most beneficial across each stage of a tech business’ lifecycle.
The Technology Sector often faces challenges regarding growth, governance and investors’ appeal that are different from other industries. These challenges have been at the focal point of discussions between entrepreneurs and investors across the Industry and have seen a surge of attention due to the associated risks within such a fast-paced and rapidly evolving industry.
The research will form the baseline against which we can launch more specific and targeted projects that will address the gaps in awareness, knowledge, and implementation across the Region’s Technology Industry. We intend to work with programme collaborators, funders, stakeholders and leaders in the Technology Industry (representing both technology businesses and Investors) to gain a clear understanding of the current state of the industry and what can be done to foster its growth and global competitiveness
