Deep Knowledge Group conducts strategic trip to the UAE to expand operations in MENA
Deep Knowledge Group (DKG) has recently conducted a week-long strategic visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to deepen the company’s DeepTech-focused activities in the GCC and unveil several key MENA-focused projects.
The trip has been undertaken by Deep Knowledge Group General Partner Dmitry Kaminskiy, Head of the Group’s UAE branch Baha Hamadi, and Head of Deep Knowledge Ventures Suisse Stefan Hascoet, as part of an ongoing effort to expand regional operations.
During the trip, DKG finalised the configuration for Gulf Region Big Data Analytics System and Dashboard, a first-of-its-kind AI-driven analytical tool to profile, map and generate insights on the entire digital and tech ecosystem across GCC countries. Slated for launch in January 2022, the System will provide automated tools for intelligent data-driven DeepTech decision making for investors, corporations, and governments.
The DKG team also conducted several meetings with high-calibre policy and decision makers including the Department of Health in Abu Dhabi. Both parties underscored the impact of data analytics on healthy longevity, the economy and the global standing of cities such as Abu Dhabi, as well as on the bottom line of relevant businesses and traders that will operate there.

The UAE visit follows DKG’s participation in the landmark 2nd annual Arab British Economic Summit (ABES 2022), a high-level conference hosted by the Arab-British Chamber of Commerce bringing together government officials, senior executives, thought leaders, and decision-makers from the UK and the Arab World to discuss trade and investment opportunities across healthcare, education, financial services, hospitality, real estate, transport, and other key sectors.
Following the Summit and as part of DKG’s ongoing efforts to build technological bridges between the UK and the Gulf region, the company hosted the first public demonstration and launch event for its InvestTech Platform at Rise London by Barclays. DKG aims to bring innovations such as InvestTech to the UAE.
The InvestTech Platform is an AI-powered next-generation investment management technology designed to streamline fundraising and investment processes in private equity markets through innovative analytical and matching tools, providing investors with access to private equity fundraising deals leveraging the full set of instruments required to make investments, and enabling startups to focus on their growth goals, and receive comprehensive support throughout the fundraising process.
