The Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival, happening on November 25-26, 2019, at The Expo Center Sharjah, and is organized by Sheraa and under the patronage of Her Excellency Sheikha Bodour al Qasimi. Held every November, the festival is one of the fastest-growing entrepreneurship festivals in the Middle East, helping put Sharjah on the map as a vibrant hub for entrepreneurs. Inaugurated in 2017, the festival seeks to inspire the next generation of founders, instilling the courage and confidence to dream big and take charge of the future.
SEF 2019 will guide the attendees on their inner quest, and elevate their entrepreneurial experience with an aim to provide a curated view of both Sharjah’s and the wider region’s key entrepreneurship-related developments over the past year, the event’s motivational keynotes, knowledge-sharing panels, and interactive discussions and workshops will feature both regional and international leaders, experts, and decision-makers from government, academia, technology, business, and other key sectors. This is part of cultivating the entrepreneurial culture that is so vital to all entrepreneurship ecosystems, encouraging risk-taking, creativity, and critical thinking. Across the two-day event, attendees are introduced to changemakers from around the globe who share their stories and showcase the incredible potential entrepreneurship has to positively impact the world - they learn about the nature of the ecosystem and how to navigate it.
