RiseUp Summit 2016

9 December 2016 - 11 December 2016

Riseup Summit 2016

Join the fusion! Head to Downtown Cairo, Egypt on December 9 to 11 for RiseUp Summit 2016.

From a grass-root movement to a global momentum, RiseUp has grown over the years. The purpose behind RiseUp has remained the same: to connect startups to the most relevant resources worldwide.

RiseUp act as the glue that fuses ecosystems together to help them realize their ultimate potential. By connecting stakeholders to local & global networks, and fusing diverse talents & resources, ecosystems are enabled to accelerate, innovate, and grow.

From workshops, inspiring talks, and panel discussions to startup stations, pitch competitions, and networking platforms with industry experts. Whoever you are, there’s a place for you.

RiseUp Connect
It is a digital space that connects you to any resource you need anytime, anywhere!

Connect is a community based platform that will provide startups with 6 much needed resources: funding, talent, exposure, knowledge, toolbox and marketplace

Riseup Explore
People travel all the time for learning, exposure, and experience, so why don’t startups?

We’ve designed a very special program where selected startups from the region (currently the Middle East & Africa) go on trips to global ecosystems centered around events, conferences, and summits taking place there.

Through Explore, startups go on a curated experience where they have the opportunity to get exposure to new markets, connect with global industry leaders, network with investors, and most importantly gain know-how that will help them better achieve their goals.

Riseup Meetup
How stronger can ecosystems get if they were given more opportunities to network, connect, and share resources? We thought, A LOT, and designed #RISEUPMEETUPS to do just that.

Our MeetUps are all-year-round gatherings in different cities between ecosystems’ stakeholders to discuss new, trending, and relevant topics.
