In a competitive market, GITEX Future Stars has emerged as the leading launchpad event for the MENA region and beyond. Its winning formula: a high-octane festival of creativity, technology and business networking, that attracts some of the world’s best start-ups.
GITEX Future Stars guarantees its participants face time with thousands of visitors and buyers; offers them opportunities to pitch to more than 400 top-ranked investors from Silicon Valley to Europe and Asia; and helps them scale up through dedicated accelerator programmes – not to mention the chance to compete in the Supernova Challenge, for a share of a US$200,000 prize pool.
The 2019 edition attracted an audience of more than 750 start-ups from 75 countries representing the three key lifecycle moments: breakthrough ideas needing funds to come to life, start-ups eager to grow to the next stage, and blossoming businesses seeking top investors.
2020 will once again feature a high-profile conference with keynote speeches and panel sessions, featuring 250 leading tech minds. The line-up will include inspiring stories from entrepreneurs who beat the odds to succeed, and nine sector-focused talks on current and future trends.
