Keep your schedule free on Sep 29 and 30 if you don’t want to miss out on one of the most high profile technology summits in the Middle East and North Africa. We’re talking about the fourth edition of Techne Summit, an event that is likely to attract more than 5,000 attendees from across the region like it usually does.

A get together of industry influencers

To be held at the famed Alexandria Library, the two-day summit aims to help up-and-coming entrepreneurs in the region to connect with investors and business leaders in the technology and communication sectors. While doing so, the summit will provide a globally visible platform to the participants to share knowledge, experiences, industry insights, and above all, new opportunities.

Speaking of the vision of the summit and its contribution to the region’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, Tarek El Kady, Techne Summit Founder, said: “The knowledge sharing, networking opportunities, panel discussions, 1-to-1 meetings, fundraising possibilities, and international educational opportunities through startup competitions that Techne Summit has created are unique to this event given its international nature and role as a leading event in the technology industry in the region.”

Techne Summit 2018 is expected to see participation of more than 200 startups, 80 investors, 100 speakers, and 5,000 attendees from more than two dozen different countries.

What’s new in Techne Summit 2018

The forthcoming edition of the summit plans on adding many new tracks in addition to the ones that were already there in the previous versions:

  • Marketing and Media Tech
  • FinTech
  • HealthTech
  • eCommerce
  • Investment Track (accessible to only investors)
  • Architecture and Real Estate Tech
  • Startup Academy (includes workshops and one-on-one mentorship sessions)

And if all these new additions are somehow now enough to get you all psyched up, then how about some exciting and closely contested pitch competitions? Yes, there will be a few of those as well, with over $1M in total prize value.
