Bridging the Israeli and UAE Startup Ecosystem

Tue, Nov 17, 2020, 8:00 PM (GMT+4)

About this event

Startup Grind Dubai and Startup Grind Israel are proud to present a historic cross-chapter event that builds bridges between our chapters and opens opportunities for our community members. The opportunities for trade and joint ventures were central to our decision to host this event. Through the Startup Grind ecosystem, we are excited to foster the building of relationships between those on different coasts who are building the jobs of tomorrow.

Both our chapters have always held the view that business connections, such as those we create, can facilitate collaboration, cooperation, and regional co-creation for the jobs of the future. Though the new opportunities formed between Israel and the UAE, driven by leadership, the startup ecosystem can play a huge part in building this bridge. Will you join us?

Whether you're a fast-acting entrepreneur who likes to be the first to recognize opportunities or you're just curious about making connections with members of the startup communities in Israel or the UAE, then this is the event you can't miss.

This event will include a panel discussion with: 

  • Dr. Erel Margalit, Founder and Executive Chairman of JVP, and Margalit Startup City
  • Dr. Saeed Al Dhaheri, Chairman of the board, Smartworld
  • Dr. Sara Al Madani, Co-Founder,CEO, Halahi
  • Derek Andersen, Founder, CEO, Bevy / Startup Grind

We look forward to sharing this historic event with you.
