Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center, Sheraa, is launching the largest entrepreneurship festival in the UAE at the Sheraa Hub, American University of Sharjah on November 21 and 22.
Organized and led by Sheraa, the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival (SharjahEF) aims to celebrate entrepreneurship and gather all the key players to inspire, empower and connect. The festival welcomes youth, entrepreneurs, government partners, potential investors and industry veterans from the global business community. The festival will bring together more than 1500 attendees for two full days of conversations and workshops, and the region’s 60 best startups showcasing at Startup Town. The startups will also be pitching in the festival’s Pitch Competition for a chance to win up to AED150,000, judged by an external committee of ecosystem leaders.
Najla Al-Midfa, general manager at Sheraa, says in a statement, “Launching the inaugural edition of the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival is just one of the many ways Sharjah’s entrepreneurial ecosystem is coming together to fuel not just established startups but also aspiring entrepreneurs. This two-day celebration of entrepreneurship aims to inspire new achievements, generate thought-provoking discussions, and rejuvenate the ecosystem’s spirit and passion for building a better future.”
