Maha Al Balushi

Managing director, Oman Technology Fund

Maha Al Balushi is managing director at the Oman Technology Fund (OTF), running the group’s first pre-seed accelerator programme, Techween, which NDRC is providing support for.

She studied in Oman and Singapore, picking up two diplomas in IT, a degree in internet applications and a master’s in IT project management before returning to Oman as part of a national drive to generate a technology start-up ecosystem in the region.

Maha worked on a number of similar projects in Muscat before moving to OTF and kicking off the Techween programme, which is currently halfway through its first cycle, with the entire cohort heading to Dublin for a two-week stint at NDRC.
