Build a global perspective: The Middle East is in the midst of a critical moment. Innovation and collaboration is more possible and more important than ever before. At the Summit, you will experience first-hand what makes Dubai and the MENA region such a vibrant innovation ecosystem, learning from top investors and entrepreneurs in the region.
Experience the unforgettable: This year's Summit will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, featuring curated content including renowned keynote speakers, regional showcases, breakout sessions, cultural dinners, and exclusive VIP ecosystem and cultural tours. You'll spend time with investment leaders on the water, in the desert, and at the top of the world at Burj Khalifa. Connect and forge meaningful relationships: Building a global network of top venture investors starts with getting together to discuss ideas, gain inspiration, and meet new global fellows. The Summit provides an opportunity to connect with your peers and to forge new and meaningful relationships with Kauffman Fellows from around the world through a variety of cultural experiences, receptions, and peer learning.
