The summit will take place at The Great Pyramids in Giza, with this year’s theme being Timeless Innovation. The Pyramids is a great and appropriate choice for the summit’s venue, right? Generations later, they never fail to awe and inspire people across all walks of life!

There’s another reason why this year’s RiseUp Summit is special is it’s the fifth year. Started in 2013 by Muhammed M. Mansour, Abdelhameed Sharara, Con O’Donnell, and Gehad Hussein, RiseUp came to life, and the rest was history for the Egyptian summit-sphere.

If you’re curious about how the whole summit started, we’ll tell you. All that happened was Mansour saw Austin city’s SXSW and became inspired. Years later, the summit began to gain global reach, and some of the world’s leading companies started to participate, including IBM, Facebook, Uber, and Pepsi.

If you’re interested or involved in startups, tech, or entrepreneurship, you’ll find everything that fits your interests at RiseUp. Before you hesitate, we know what you’re thinking. No, you don’t have to be one of Egypt’s leading investors. Anyone can attend.

This is your opportunity to connect with investors, entrepreneurs, and mentors. So whether you have an idea you want to pitch, or you’re a fresh graduate who’s still lost in the post-grad journey, you can be sure the summit will have all your needs covered. Even food! RiseUp is dedicating a foodie corner with various food and beverage stations within its three-day exhibition.
