Doha Dojo

That’s right! This is the inaugural Doha Dojo. We have partnered with 500Startups to bring you their exclusive international, entrepreneur-coveted Series A Program (formerly known as Distro Dojo) accelerator here in Qatar!!! 

What is it?

It’s a three-month investment program that provides intensive one-on-one training and mentoring. The program runs once a year, and accepts a small number of companies (less than 10) that have previously raised funding from other investors and ready to scale their business to raise their Series A round.


To optimize your company’s funnel, increase traffic generation and grow your business.


Methodology focuses on key areas such as:

  • Customer Acquisition 
  • Growth Hacking
  • Distribution 
  • Referral Marketing and Retargeting  
  • Content Marketing and SEO
  • UX & Conversion Optimization
  • Pitching to Investors

  • We are staffed with 6 internationally renowned growth mentors onsite at all times. Our mentors will challenge you and work intensely with you to track your company’s key metrics and progress. They will help you uncover new channels and identify untapped opportunities.


    The residential part of the program runs from 30th April - 25th May 2017. Investor Day is taking place on 23 May, 2017.
