A collective of investment bankers and financial experts will get together to discuss and evaluate investment opportunities of pre-revenue tech startups in Saudi and the rest of the region. The ultimate objective of this initiative is to spread awareness within the financial ecosystem about the benefits of investing in entrepreneurial projects.
The initiative, held in collaboration with the Institute of Finance, the Business Incubators and Accelerators Company (BIAC), also includes a two-day training program at the headquarters of the Institute of Finance (Riyadh) on May 2 and 3, 2018.
Among other things, the training program will focus on helping participants better understand and develop innovative solutions for the evaluation of promising technology businesses. Special efforts will be made to educate participants about the key concepts of business startup, technology development, and investment appraisal.
This is the second of three programs that have been custom-made to nurture the capabilities and skills of professionals in the investment sector.
