We are creating a platform to help them overcome those difficulties. The platform will allow the early-stage, and mostly unfunded innovative companies to take center stage and demo in front of fellow entrepreneurs, CEOs, venture capitalists, IT professionals, IT students, media, advertising agencies, and early tech adapters." He added. “We chose these startups based purely on their innovation, without regard to their own financial resources. We try to help those startups thrive and succeed, as for the established ones, we help them gain further market momentum.”

Saqer Concluded "We are able to organize this event because of the generous support of the following companies: e-Marketing MENA as a platinum sponsor, Maktoob as a gold sponsor, Ikbis as a bronze sponsor and great support from our media partners: Mashable, Addustour Newspaper, The Star Newspaper and CenterNetworks.”

Several discussions will be held after technology and business experts had presented their products. There also will be keynote speakers from the region and the world speaking at the event, to share their know-how and expertise in managing and running great innovative world-class companies, thus help spark vigorous discussions and debates during the event.
