In the heart of the innovation spirit at #STEP2016

We had the pleasure to be in the heart of the innovation spirit at #STEP2016, an event that gathered start-ups in the tech industry from all around the MENA region. 

The 2-day event was full of dynamism, ideas, collaborations and great changes. Our team met up with a crowd of journalists, startups, and foodies that were all very excited about hiring a Private Chef within a flew clicks!

We finished the event with our brains full of new thoughts, potential collaborations with other startups, and great feedback on the future of the startup industry in the region. Celebrity speakers and entrepreneurial experts debated such as Bassem Youcif the Egyptian Satirist, Ahmed Shihab Eldin from Vice, among others, inspired us! 

The other great experience was having Guillaume (Community Manager, Dubai) to pitch on the first day among 10 of the 200 registered new startups. He made it to the final pitch with two other startups and almost won a brand new Cadillac car!

At STEP, we had a great time meeting with representatives from Google and Facebook, and learning about each startup that had a booth there. The Middle East seems to be in a pro-active period with new, innovative business concepts.

We decided to partner-up with many of those startups for great and exciting activities coming up soon, working hand-in-hand to grow our projects together in the Middle East.
