Wamda Mix N' Mentor Events in Amman, Beirut, and Dubai

by wamda, October 23, 2012

After the success of Wamda's CoE E-Commerce event in June, Wamda is now hosting three mentorship events in three cities! If you came to CoE E-Commerce, you'll remember the fun of Day 1, we will be hosting a similar format in November in 3 different cities and you can register today!

First, we hosted a Mentor's Lunch, where entrepreneurs discussed marketing, fund raising, and hiring with leading experts in the space, building deep connections with these mentors and each other.

Afterwards, we hosted an Unconference, with no pre-set topics. Entrepreneurs pitched, voted on, and hosted discussions highlighting their favorite issues and ideas; some group discussions kicked off furious debates.

This time, in November, we are hosting 3 Mix N' Mentors that each have a unique twist:

  • Nov 9th, Amman: This MnM will be co-organized with Oasis500 and Geeks On A Planewho will be visting from Silicon Valley. If you're not familiar with Geeks on a Plane, watch their video or check out their organizer 500startups, a Silicon Valley seed fund and starutp accelerator.
     
  • Nov 10th, Beirut: The event in Beirut will be co-organized with AltCity, Beirut's creative co-working space with a focus on social entrepreneurship. This MnM also takes place in the middle of GEW (Global Entrepreneurship Week), so expect to see Lebanon's entire entrepreneurship ecosystem come out to play. 
     
  • Nov 15th, Dubai: This MnM will take place right after the World Economic Forum summit, and we've invited a number of high profile mentors to the Pavilion Downtown. Get excited for a fireside chat with Joi Ito and Fadi Ghandour.
     
  • Cairo is coming very soon! Stay posted on Wamda.
