Flat6Labs Hosts First Regional Demo Day Riyadh, KSAEvent Starts: 10 Dec 2019 5:00 pmProgram Ends:10 Dec 2019 10:00 pm
Flat6Labs hosted its First Regional Demo Day during ArabNet Riyadh on December 10, 2019, which took place at the Riyadh International Convention & Exhibition Center. The Regional Demo Day is a first of its kind for Flat6Labs on a regional level, following more than 30 successful local Demo Days across Flat6Labs locations in Egypt, KSA, UAE, Lebanon, Tunis and Bahrain.
The Regional Demo Day showcased 18 investor-ready, high-growth, scalable startups from Cairo, Beirut, Tunis and Bahrain , who presented their products and services to a select audience of potential investors and the media from Saudi Arabia, the MENA region, and the international entrepreneurial community.
The selected Flat6Labs startups were handpicked from a pool of 240+ startups from the past 30+ cycles, providing them with the opportunity to scale and expand into the MENA region and beyond.
The startup founders and teams were tackling solutions across an array of industries including Clean Technology, E-commerce, Ed Tech, Health Tech, IoT, SaaS, Logistics, Recruitment, Sports Tech, among others.
Flat6Labs startups go through several stages before they are selected to become a fully developed startup, powered by Flat6Labs funding, network and expertise. They also have the privilege of using the Flat6Labs office space as their own, where they are connected to mentors, consultants, investors, business workshops, training sessions and perks, amongst many others.
The First Regional Demo Day solidifies Flat6Labs’ aim to accelerate the growth rate of entrepreneurship in MENA, and to provide a steady pipeline to the region’s rapidly-growing venture capital ecosystem.
Flat6Labs’ mission is not only to serve startups as an early stage investment vehicle, but much more than that: we are our startups’ institutional partner. As Flat6Labs’ footprint and impact grows across MENA and even beyond, we make sure that this leading stance within the region directly helps our startups and partners to achieve their goals in reaching their customers and scaling across their required markets” said Ramez El-Serafy CEO at Flat6labs.
And that’s exactly what we’re doing with our first Regional Demo Day. We’re bringing together 18 brilliant Flat6Labs startups from across our offices in MENA to enable them to take their next step towards follow-on funding and scalability” added El-Serafy. Omar Christidis, CEO of ArabNet said, “We’re thrilled to be hosting the first ever Flat6labs Regional Demo Day at Arabnet Riyadh this year. The conference is the ideal platform for these promising startups to access the region’s largest digital market — Saudi Arabia — by connecting with over 6,000 attendees and 150+ investors, and forging relationships with potential partners and clients.”
