The Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival 2018’s Startup Town showcased more than 70 startups across tech, e-commerce, healthcare and more. Entrepreneur Middle East chats with Albert Dias, co-founder and CTO of Jett, a corporate travel management SaaS which aims to make business travel easier and more efficient.

As a startup that deals with corporate relationships, Dias notes how building new relationships and acquiring new contracts is a definite challenge. To aspiring entrepreneurs, Dias says that the key is finding an endeavor they are passionate about, “Find something that keeps you up tat night. Find something you want to wake up for at four in the morning. Find something that motivates you to work each day and that, I think, will keep you in the long run.”

Organized by Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center, Sheraa, the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival (SharjahEF) 2018 gathered more than 3,000 attendees, consisting of youth, entrepreneurs, government partners, investors and industry veterans. The two-day event featured more than 100 prominent local, regional and international speakers.
