Coinciding with the 63rd International Selection Panel in Dubai, Endeavor UAE hosted the inaugural Scale-Up UAE event, bringing together over 140 participants in a day of networking and knowledge sharing. Attendees heard from Endeavor Entrepreneurs, Mentors and Board Members from across the MENA region. The event takes its name from the Scale-Up event series hosted by Endeavor Jordan.
Highlighting the increasingly important role the private sector plays in generating sustained employment and economic growth in the region, the event brought together a network of highly experienced entrepreneurs, mentors and investors from the UAE, Middle East and abroad, for a series of expert-led interactive panel discussions on issues faced by entrepreneurs at every stage of scaling their business. The event garnered significant media coverage for Endeavor in the UAE as a unique event targeted at the scale-up ecosystem.
Highlights included interactive sessions with Endeavor UAE Entrepreneurs Idriss Al Rifai of Fetchr, Michael Lahyani of Propertyfinder.ae and Mona Ataya of Mumzworld, who have successfully navigated MENA’s equity and capital markets and overcome region-specific challenges to scale up.
“There is much support for start-ups within the region, but too often those who have progressed beyond the initial stages of success and are ready to scale-up, are overlooked. These are some of the most important entrepreneurs in any market, thanks to their high propensity for job creation and sustained economic growth. Scale-Up UAE is an exciting and exceptional opportunity for entrepreneurs to learn from and interact directly with captains of industry and inspiring role models who’ve achieved success through scale,” said Noor Shawwa, Managing Director of Endeavor UAE.
