Everyone knows by now that startups and entrepreneurs are disrupting the Middle East’s digital economy.
Studies show that more than $750 million were invested in 450+ tech startups from the MENA between 2013-2015. Furthermore, it is expected that the region will host at least one “unicorn” (USD 1 billion-valued startup) by 2020, in addition to USD 10 billion in publicly-listed Internet companies by 2025, following a recent report by Kauffmann Fellows.
Having said this, many efforts and initiatives continue to foster the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the region which aims to empower startups and guide them towards success.
After bringing together the regions’ startup community with two events in Dubai so far, the SAP Training and Development Institute continues to drive innovation by expanding the program into Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan and Egypt with an events roadshow in November 2016. In cooperation with local partners, the institute together with Startup Focus aims to further support technology entrepreneurs, who are the main driving force of the Middle East’s digital evolution.
Technology startups across MENA, whose product ideas are based on Big Data and predictive or real-time analytics solutions, can register for the events by following the link for each country respectively.
