FLICKSHOT is an incubator based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates that supports web3 entrepreneurs. We support the web3 industry by supplying risk money for the seed phase, including assisting web3 entrepreneurs to relocate and set up companies when taking on the challenge of going abroad from Japan. In addition, we will invest in global startups and support partnerships by taking advantage of Dubai's excellent location, which makes it easy to reach global markets such as India, Africa, and Europe, as well as the Middle East.


Two partners, both venture capitalists with backgrounds in Japan and globally, with investment and support experience in the seed area, will support the web3 startups.
