The Father of Startups: Sleem Hasan is joining us at DSRPTD 2021

Updated: Sep 8, 2021

Sleem Hasan aka The Father of Startups is coming to DSRPTD 2021 this October in Dubai to share his deep thoughts on how to value early stage startups and how does he look at the VC industry and what are his criteria for picking the best home runners.

Sleem coined the term 4Is (Ideas, Intelligence, Innovation, and Inventions) which shapes the thesis and mandate of Privity, the early stage venture focused Dubai-based entity. Privity is a member of the Global Blockchain Council and AWS Activate.

Privity's portfolio includes Qontento now Quor (fka qbeats) backed by the Times of India the world's largest publisher and content provider even to YouTube. qbeats the data search engine providing search results based on the quality of the piece of information, and prices it according to the current supply and demand on such a piece of information, and produces a candle chart for the live price of the piece of information, where you can either buy it or choose to watch an Ad where the advertiser pays for the information you searched for, and you get it for free. Worth mentioning that the CME Chicago Mercantile Exchange abandoned Google and started using qbeats a couple of years ago and ending up being a stakeholder in qbeats.

Another interesting startup is the Italian startup Tolemaica, the owner of the patented IAC (Instant Automatic Certification) technology allowing you to automatically and instantly certify with legal value the date and place of images (photographs / videos) and audio (sounds / calls) collected with smartphones and other devices such as drones, action cameras, satellites, scanners, cameras, PDAs, etc.

Worth noting that Tolemaica was a finalist in the Super Nova Challenge last year at the GITEX Future Stars of the GITEX Technology Week by the Dubai World Trade Center, where the team behind DSRPTD has ran the Investor Relations and the Startup Competition of the 1st Edition of the Global Startup Programme mandated by the Italian Trade Agency within their governmental initiatives "Invest In Italy" and "Italian Startup". Tolemaica particpated again in the 2nd Edition of the Global Startup Programme at the first Gov-to-Gov accelerator programme by Dubai Future Foundation where the team behind DSRPTD has ran the Media, Communication, and Investor Relations, and hosted at AREA 2071 the Investor Pitching Session with the participation of SAP, Accenture, Du, and Agora Group.

With a demonstrated history of working in Venture Capital and the Japanese Capital Markets. Skilled in Investor Relations, Securities, Asset Management, Investment Advisory, and working with Technology Entrepreneurs. Strong entrepreneurship professional with a Part III Mathematical Tripos from Cambridge University & M.A.(Hons) Mathematics from Oxford University. Sleem will hit DSRPTD Stage with a wealth of insightful knowledge and best practices sharing what makes him excited about the tech startup scene.
