Tigarti attends RiseUp Summit

 In downtown Cairo, the Greek Campus hosted RiseUp Summit, the MENA region’s leading event for entrepreneurs. The three-day event featured more than 5,000 participants and 200 talks.

A variety of companies including IBM, Facebook, Vodaphone, Pepsi, and Uber, who launched their first ever Uber Bus service, were also present at the summit.  Three of the most notable speakers were Mrs. Lamis Elhadidy who spoke about how mainstream media can benefit startups, Dr. Farouk el Baz who shed light on to his personal, academic, and professional development journey, and Mr. Jack Pau, chief of staff of Jack Ma, Alibaba who was featured in a discussion on Africa’s Digital Lions.

The event also features an exhibition for 150 startups. Each day of the summit 50 different startups were given the chance to share their idea and network with each other. Tigarti was allocated an exhibition at the AUC Tahrir Campus on the final day of the event. Hundreds of attendees passed through the Tigarti booth to learn more about what Tigarti has to offer.

It is truly amazing to see downtown Cairo transform into a three-day hub for entrepreneurs, executives, and investors from all over the world. We look forward to participating in the third edition of RiseUp Summit next year!
