The MIT Enterprise Forum Arab startup competition is back for its 14th edition. The application process for the competition is now live and interested candidates from all over the region are encouraged to send their applications by December 15, 2020. 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the MITEF competition this year will be held completely virtually. This opens up a new window of opportunity for any Arab innovator to join the competition from basically anywhere in the world.

Once again, the competition is being backed by Community Jameel as the main event partner and Zain Group as the strategic digital partner. 

The competition will retain its original format, which means startups and innovators have three separate tracks to apply for. These are Startups Track, Ideas Track, and Social Entrepreneurship Track.

The winners in each track/category will receive equity-free prizes, as well as an array of digital in-kind perks. 

So what are you waiting for? The previous rendition of the competition attracted more than 2,000 applications from all over the region. You don’t want to be buried in the competition by waiting until the last moment.
