1. When should we arrive?

The arrival date is the 8th of Feb, the desert safari will take place starting from around 3-4 pm and hence an arrival in the morning should be fine.

2. How is the application procedure going?

SME and Berlin Partner will jointly evaluate the companies and identify those that potentially will have the most impact and or opportunities here.

The Investors evening will be twofold, in the first half of the evening we will have a short panel discussion with the biggest VC firms in the Middle East, discussing the financing landscape locally. In the second part of the evening every company will have the chance to pitch their company / solution to all participating VCs.

The number of attendees per company is not limited. However appreciate if all companies that will attend with more than two attendees do let us know before.
