Our Eighth Pitch Meeting

As the oppressive summer heat begins to dissipate, WOMENA welcomed its members back for our eight Pitch Meeting on September 30th after the summer break. It was our first Pitch Meeting since June and we were eagerly anticipating the resumption of our monthly Pitch Meetings. The event was held at the excellent in5 in Dubai and we look forward to returning there in the future.

The meeting started off with WOMENA Co-Founders speaking on how to maximise WOMENA membership. It covered a lot of topics and was well received by the audience.

Following that, our two presenting companies for September – Pavilion 33 and Yaqut – presented.

Pavilion 33

Pavilion 33 is a curated marketplace for fine art from emerging art scenes, starting with the Middle East and Africa. They were part of the first class of graduating companies from Flat6Labs Abu Dhabi.

Yaqut is a gamified and ad-subsidized eBookstore based in Jordan and has become the most popular and fastest growing in key MENA markets.

We were very pleased with how the event went with over 50 people were in attendance and it was great to see so many new faces.

Our next Pitch Meetings will be on October 26th and November 23rd. Ennota, ioGrow and UserTalk will Pitch in October and Kanari and KinTrans will pitch in November. These Pitch Meetings are by invitation only; if you would like to attend one (or both!), please email us at contact@womena.co!
