Satellite Events

Satellite Events are events planned either before/after December 9,10,11 (we’re talking hackathons & tours) or are hosted outside of the 9 am – 6 pm Summit schedule (party anyone?). Just when you think you couldn’t experience more, satellite events will provide more knowhow, more networking and more fun! Our community will host events all over Egypt, to make sure our #RiseUp16 attendees have non-stop experiences!
