Entrepreneurs and investors from across the Middle East came together once again for Endeavor Jordan’s fourth edition of its annual DealMakers event, which was held this year on November 7-8, 2016 at the Grand Hyatt Amman in Jordan. With an agenda comprising of everything from interactive workshops facilitated by the Amsterdam-based THNK School for Creative Leadership to knowledge-sharing sessions with speakers like Careem co-founder and Managing Director Mudassir Sheikha, ReserveOut founder and CEO Khalil Shadid, ArabiaWeather founder and CEO Mohammed Al-Shaker and others, DealMakers 2016 also allowed for the entrepreneurs gathered at the event to have one-to-one sessions with investors, with the former having 15 minutes each to pitch their respective businesses.

“Funding remains a key challenge that entrepreneurs face today,” said Rasha Manna, Managing Director, Endeavor Jordan, in a statement about the event. “For this reason, we made sure that this year’s program addressed funding issues during the workshops, speeches and panel discussions. Having prominent entrepreneurs come in and give personal accounts of their own journeys was especially beneficial, and I am sure participants walked out with a renewed sense of purpose and confidence in their startups.”
