Coming from the San Francisco Bay Area, I couldn’t skip a visit to the ‘local Silicon Valley’. Here in Dubai it is called Internet City and although it isn’t enormously big in size, I was surprised by the amount and diversity of the companies.
As you can see on the picture, Dell and Sony have their own nice big buildings, but also Oracle, Cisco, Microsoft, Canon, EMC², AMD, etc. have theirs. And besides these big players there are hundreds of companies that are settled there as well. The list is quite impressive. You can have a look at the directory on the DIC website.
Unfortunately I couldn’t enter many buildings. On the other hand there’s not that much too see besides desks and computers I guess. Either way, nice to have a walk in the Dubai Internet City!
PS: There’s also a Media City where all the radio, tv, newspapers and so on are located. And there’s also a knowledge village where the majority of the universities (including Hult) is located.
