City Caravans

Why attend RiseUp?

We previously had country delegations coming from all over the world, but we realize that cities need to be more connected than ever before. Entrepreneurship goes beyond borders, and it is our hope that startups will be present in cities across countries. Connections are made between city ecosystems, and through City Caravans, you’ll be able to connect with as many as possible this RiseUp Summit!

A city caravan is a group of startups traveling together led by entrepreneurship supporters. They represent their city’s ecosystem at RiseUp16! Hop on your City’s Caravan (or lead one!) this December!

  • TRAVEL FACILITATION
    After we issue an official invitation letter for you, our partners will help you plan your travel and make it as easy as 1,2,3! They will answer all your questions, recommend flights and places to stay, either a 5 starts hotel, hostel or a host, they will figure it out for you! As soon as you land, they will be there to welcome you to Cairo!
  • EXCLUSIVE NETWORKING DINNERS
    You don’t have to travel across 2 regions to build a global network. RiseUp gathers all caravans in exclusive networking mixers to speed up the greet & meet process. We’ll help you make those deep connections… plus a few friends in less than 5 days!
  • CARAVANS’ ZONE
    An exhibition area that aims to give a physical space for showcasing & networking. Each caravan has a booth that is like a “Home” for each group and an assembly spot. The spaces are given at discounted prices & have dedicated volunteers to help you set up & navigate.
  • PERSONAL ASSISTANT & CURATED EXPERIENCE
    RiseUp is partnering with Elves to be your personal little helper at #RiseUp16. You’ll be able to directly ask your Elf for anything from ticket updates to discovering Egypt. RiseUp-Elves will help you curate an experience you’ll never forget!
  • STARTUP TICKET VALUE FOR THE PRICE OF A REGULAR TICKET (double the perks!)
    Get all the benefits of the startup track such as access to apply to competitions, investors – startups networking event and advanced workshops/ master classes for the price of a regular ticket.
  • MAXIMIZING EXPOSURE
    Caravans are a main feature of RiseUp every year. From dedicated caravan zones and ecosystem galleries, to media and photographers capturing memories.
