Tarun is a startup ecosystem builder & programs manager with experience in corporate innovation and vertical based programs. He currently works with Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center (Sheraa), where he manages programs to support the next wave of entrepreneurs– innovate and grow.
In the past, he has worked with Intelak Hub and Aviation X Lab, where he co-created the region's leading hubs for startups in aviation, travel, and tourism. For over three years, Tarun volunteered with Techstars Startup Weekend– as a community builder in the Middle East region, helping build early-stage startup communities.
Tarun's passion for startups came early on when from university, he co-founded Trift, a travel discovery platform that has raised grants and investments from around the world. From his experience at Trift, he brings back a wealth of knowledge to the programmes he helps build.
I want to join to connect with more startup founders and be a part of the travel community.
