Our Road to RiseUp Summit 2016

In a world full of opportunities that are sprinkled everywhere, it became increasingly challenging for entrepreneurs to take advantage of them all. But when all these opportunities come together along with creative entrepreneurs under one roof…wonders start to happen!

Every year in December, entrepreneurs from all over the MENA Region get together in Downtown Cairo to network, attend workshops, and pitch their promising ideas to angel investors from all over the world.
Yes! You probably guess that right. We are talking about the RiseUp Summit.

Yes! You probably guess that right. We are talking about the RiseUp Summit.
Truth be told, long before the moment RiseUp hosted its annual press conference back on the 20th of November to announce the biggest RiseUp Summit ever, we at Pimula were literally hustling to make sure everything is set in apple-pie order for the mecca of entrepreneurship in the Middle East & North Africa!
What makes this year’s version of RiseUp Summit really special is that it will host more than 5 competitions and satellite events, startup station (exhibition), pitching competitions, networking events, workshops inspiring talks, and panel discussions.

RiseUp Summit: From Quantum Leap to Fusion

For those of you who didn’t follow up on the news, #RiseUp15 was a massive success by all means. Its slogan was “Quantum Leap,” which basically describes the transition an electron has to make inside of an atom, in order to move to a greater energy state.
As per RiseUp Summit official website, more than 49 countries were present from all over the world, and about 4366 people actually attended the mega event.

As a creative digital marketing agency ourselves, and since we attended #RiseUp15, we couldn’t resist the entrepreneurial temptation to attend this year’s event as well.

This is our second consecutive year at RiseUp Summit, which makes us the first marketing agency from Alexandria to attend RiseUp Summit for two times in a row!
We couldn’t be more thrilled to attend the Mecca of Entrepreneurship in Egypt, and we hope to see you all there.
