The superstars of MENA’s most innovative early-stage startups will step onto one of history’s most magnificent stages and pitch their startup to the world.

Pitch by the Pyramids is a multi-stage regional startup pitch competition launched in startup ecosystems around the Middle East and North Africa, before converging for the final event at the foot of the Great Pyramids of Giza.

The Pitch by the Pyramids program offers startups much more than just a unique experience and exposure. Startups participating will receive extensive webinar sessions covering business and market intelligence and growth planning. Also, the program will delegate a high profile mentor to support the finalist startups with their development.

The finalists will pitch in front of hundreds of their peers, extensive media coverage, as well as representatives of regional and international VCs and investors this December.
