What’s Startup Battle and Arabnet?
Promising pitches, lucrative funding, fruitful networking, and ambitious business deals, that’s Arabnet Beirut 2019 in a nutshell!
Building up to its 10th bigger-than-ever conference, Arabnet is holding a series of Startup Battles around the MENA region to pick winners to compete at Arabnet Beirut 2019. The competitive battles will take place in Bahrain, Baghdad, Beirut, Dubai, Kuwait, Riyadh and last but not least, our very own Cairo.
We’re bringing it to Cairo!
Startups Galaxy is delighted to host Cairo’s edition of the Startup Battle, which will take place on 24 April at The Greek Campus. The best 10 startups will be chosen to present their innovative ideas then, where they will have five minutes to wow the panel of judges, made up of industry leaders and investors.
After that, 3 startups will be shortlisted to present their pitches at Arabnet Beirut from 12 to 13th of June. The same scenario will happen with the other participating countries. Each of the chosen startup founders will receive paid flight tickets to Lebanon, paid accommodation in Beirut, booth exhibit and investor lounge access.
Judging will be based on these criteria: business model, competitive advantage, team qualifications, innovation, target market, value proposition, and market strategy. The winner will receive $20,000, acceleration scholarship in Silicon Valley by TechWadi, in addition to many more prizes.
To be eligible for application, startups must be less than 2 years old, have less than 30 employees, have less than $2M in investment, be a digital service or product, and be functional before the competition deadline.
