The summit is our three-day, one-stop-shop, entrepreneurship marathon! Three years ago, when the seeds of the #RISEUPSUMMIT movement were sown we never imagined that in such a short time, our movement would Quantum Leap from an exciting local event into a global phenomenon. In 2015, we promised that the world would be coming to Downtown Cairo, and thanks to an incredible level of commitment from our tireless team and phenomenal partners, we delivered. Thought leaders, media mavens, tech-legends and power player investors gather to share their experience, support and invest in the Middle East & Africa’s flourishing entrepreneurial ecosystem. From workshops, inspiring talks, and panel discussions to startup stations, pitch competitions, and networking platforms with industry experts. Whoever you are, you’ll find a place for you. Check out all the updates here.
