With successful exits in the region, notably of Uber's US$3.1 billion acquisition of Careem this year alone and Amazon's $580 million buy-out on Souq in 2017, the UAE is committed to being an entrepreneurial hub, as well as create initiatives to bring together the most prominent startup founders, accelerator and incubation programs, leads for funding, and long-term residency plans. The summit will gather startups, innovators and investors around the theme, Made in the UAE: Building Successful Startups From Idea To Exit.

Kicking off the summit, in the spirit of searching for the next upcoming unicorn, will be a startup pitch competition amongst early-stage enterprises, with the top 10 selected startups having the chance to present their proposals to win funding and incentives.

Gathering under one tent, the collective mindset will be shaping the blueprint of entrepreneurial success to the UAE's challenges and opportunities.
