About this event

As the UAE's first unicorn exit continues to inspire entrepreneurs across the region, we've partnered with ADGM to bring you The Entrepreneurship Summit. A testament to the UAE's status as MENA's entrepreneurial hub as well as its commitment to attracting and nurturing the world's top founders, The Summit will gather a select group of startups, innovators and investors around the theme: Made in the UAE: Building Successful Startups From Idea to Exit.

The UAE's most brilliant minds will be under one roof for a full day of discussions tailoring the blueprint of entrepreneurial success to the UAE's challenges and opportunities. Join us for a unique opportunity to connect, learn and be inspired by the best local entrepreneurs.

We're kicking off the official search for the region's next unicorn and bridging the early-stage funding gap with an exciting pitch competition. Five promising founding teams will be selected to present their startups for a chance to win funding and incentives.
