Cairo – Mubasher: The fourth edition of the Startups Without Borders (SWB) Summit will kick off this February at Cairo Business Park in New Cairo, state-run news agency MENA reported.

Under the theme of Go Borderless, this year’s summit is set to focus on four pillars namely: Future Tech, Impact, Investment, and Talent.

The event will gather high-profile speakers from giant tech companies, including Google, Meta, and Techstars, as well as startups from around the globe.

Meanwhile, a global competition will take place with up to $1 million in prizes and entrepreneurs will have the chance to meet with investors in the Investor Room where they can pitch their startup, get a chance to close a deal, or take away insightful feedback.

The Investor Room will give 75 startups an exclusive opportunity to sit down and have a one-on-one conversation with investors from an exclusive network of partner VC and Angel Investment Networks in Europe, the Middle East, and the US.

Valentina Primo, Founder and CEO of Startups Without Borders, said: “For the past 5 years, we have gone from city to city in the MENA and Europe on a mission to build a transnational ecosystem for entrepreneurs, no matter where they come from.

Primo added: “We continued to do so virtually during the pandemic, and now we couldn’t be more excited to gather in person again in Cairo, bringing startup delegations from unexpected places such as the Gaza strip and Baghdad and investors from all corners of the world, from Italy to Bangladesh. We are guided by the strong belief that talent doesn’t have a passport, and the summit is our biggest and loudest testament to that.”

Startups Without Borders connects the most ambitious refugee and migrant entrepreneurs with resources to grow their businesses while providing investors with an entry point to under-the-radar startups with disruptive potential.
