Why attend RiseUp?

  • SOFT LANDING IN MENA
    The region is large, with several key cities that are creating excellent tech startup businesses. Amman, Beirut, Dubai, Tunis, Cairo, and more. RiseUp gathers them all in Cairo during 4 days, making it a one-stop-shop for investors looking at the region.
  • GET TO KNOW OTHER INVESTORS
    It can be difficult to meet other investors and form relationships that could become partnerships when you don’t know who’s-who. RiseUp hosts a unique investors cocktail reception that gathers regional VCs and business angels, and invites VCs and angels from the US, Europe, Asia and Africa. It’s a fantastic way to get-to-know other investors and to gain insights into the regional market and who is already active in the space.
  • MEET THE BEST PROSPECTS – NOW FROM AFRICA TOO
    RiseUp gathers the best of the region’s startups to exhibit, pitch, learn, and network. And this year we’re bringing some of the best early-stage startups from sub-Saharan Africa too. We provide a large exhibition space, tailored networking events (including Meet Jordan, Meet Lebanon etc.), and a region-wide pitch event for early and growth-stage startups.
  • MATCHMAKING
    Once we know what kind of companies (sector, stage) an investor is interested in we will send a tailored portfolio of startups attending RiseUp Summit, and arrange for 1-on-1 meetings at the Summit. In addition investors will have special access to all the pitch events at the Summit.
  • SHOWCASING: ATTRACT THE BEST
    RiseUp also offers VCs, Corporate Funds, and Global Accelerators a platform to attract the best startups, with options for branding, meetings spaces, exhibition spaces, and the possibility to run workshop sessions and appear as speakers (depending on relevancy) at the Summit.
