A limited number of highly curated sessions with investors will be offered to entrepreneurs in Dubai on 1 March.
A number of international and regional investors will gather at an event in Dubai on 1 March to scout for new investment opportunities.
One-on-one meetups for investors and entrepreneurs – Speed Networking Sessions – will be arranged as part of the Scale-Up UAE event organised by Endeavor UAE at the Four Seasons Dubai.
Scale-up UAE is a one-day event focused on shifting the mindset of regional entrepreneurs from start-up to high-impact scale-up.
The event will be open to interested entrepreneurs through online pre-registration on a first come first serve basis as spots are limited.
Successful candidates must have an operational revenue-generating business and be in a position to raise funds in the next 12 months, ideally within technology-related industries.
Speaking about the event, Noor Shawwa, managing director at Endeavor UAE, said: “Never before has there been such a concentration of high profile regional and international investors in the same room at the same time in the UAE, and with the sole intent of forming partnerships.
“This is an incredible opportunity for entrepreneurs and a coup for the region, and we’re confident that the event will lead to several successful partnerships and the growth of some fantastic companies.
“The UAE is a hotbed of entrepreneurial ventures, and the potential for success – given the right support and funding – is extremely good. We’re delighted to be facilitating this.”
Established in 2013, Endeavor UAE is an affiliate of the global nonprofit organisation that has pioneered the concept of high-impact entrepreneurship in emerging markets around the world.
The organisation transforms economies by identifying and supporting high-potential or "high-impact" entrepreneurs.
