Organized by 500 Startups, Geeks on a Plane (#GOAP) is an invite-only tour for startups, investors, and executives to learn about high-growth technology markets worldwide. They travel by planes, trains, and automobiles to the most exciting international startup scenes with the sole mission of uniting geeks and exploring cross-border opportunities. The result: a lifelong bond with fellow travelers, a wealth of new friends and business contacts in exploding technology markets, and a stronger appreciation for the cultural and economic ties that bind us globally.

Join their upcoming Middle East tour from December 5 – 15, 2015, with stops in Dubai (UAE), Abu Dhabi (UAE), Amman (Jordan) & Cairo (Egypt).

 In addition to mentoring startups, visiting incubator programs, joining investment dinners and diving into the local culture, we’ll ascend the tallest skyscraper in the world, swim in the Dead Sea, visit the historic pyramids in Giza, cruise (and dine!) down the Nile River, check out the mummies in the Egyptian Museum & much more.

PLUS, you’ll attend the first-ever PreMoney UAE investor conference (produced by 500 Startups), as well as the annual RiseUp Summit in Cairo, one of the region’s top entrepreneurship events.
