Meet MENA Start Ups from TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2014

Share your expertise, connect with seasoned CEOs and executives from Silicon Valley and entrepreneurs from the Arab world, make it happen!

Yes, there are good news in our MENA region: 

Young entrepreneurs are up and coming, their start ups are ready to take on the global markets, and you can be part of it! You can contribute your skills and expertise, you can share your connections in Silicon Valley, and in return you can be offered a position on a prominent board of directors, a career in a rising company, but most of all  you will be rewarded with the satisfaction of giving back to your fellow entrepreneurial compatriots!

Whether you add value within an hour by sharing a contact, opening a door, offering a piece of advice, or over a longer period of time by volunteering as a mentor, you will have made a difference!

Register online and join us on September 9th at 6:30pm in San Francisco to meet with a group of 9 startups from the Middle-East. Read here about each one of them.
