Seedstars World will be hosting its first Seedstars MENA Regional Summit at the CH9 Hub in Manama, Bahrain on December 15, 2016. Besides a conference that will include keynote addresses and panel discussions relating to the MENA entrepreneurial space, the event will see winners of this year's Seedstars competitions from the UAE, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Tunisia, Turkey and the GCC pitch their respective enterprises to a 300-odd audience of investors, media professionals and other representatives from the region's startup space.

A two-day invite-only bootcamp is also being organized by Seedstars World as part of this event, which will see participants work with local and international mentors on their startups' business models, growth strategies and pitch decks.

Startups presenting at the Seedstars MENA Regional Summit will also be traveling in April next year to the Global Summit in Switzerland as well, where they will compete with 65 other startups from around the world (all winners of Seedstars pitch competitions themselves) for investments and prizes worth over US$500,000.
