What to expect at the business delegation?
(!The exact program of the business delegation and the order of meetings may change)
Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT)
We will have a meeting with the representatives of the NTDP Relocation Program, which allows companies to receive grants of up to $1.5m. Many questions will be answered and we will have the opportunity to submit a Fast track grant application (with fast track review)
Ministry of Investment
We will be visited by the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Investment (MISA) to answer questions about doing business in the country, obtaining licenses and incorporation of company
The CODE accelerator
We will visit The CODE, a well-known government accelerator. We will be given a tour and presentation on the Saudi Arabian market, talk about the ecosystem of 300 startups and answer our questions. Also, each participant will personally meet and discuss projects with The CODE representatives.
Largest startup hub - The Garage
On September 18, the new office of The Garage opened its doors. It is now the largest startup hub in MENA with an area of 28,000 sqm. In The Garage are founders and investors of some of the biggest IT companies in the region (e.g. Nana, Stc Pay, Tamara, etc.). You will be among the first to see the impressive new building. Meet the management and residents.
Industry meetings
You will participate in specially prepared industry meetings with representatives of companies, corporations and holdings. Industry meetings are held in mini-groups and are divided by industry, e.g. FinTech, IT, Industrial, Energy, Agrotech, etc.
Individual targeted meetings
You will get meetings on your request with targeted potential partners / customers. For example, Andrew from CartaMe on previous business delegation successfully met with Riyad Bank to start integration and B2b company Dsqaures for strategic partnership
Meetings with secret guests
At the Dinner we will be joining secret guests - Saudis and people who are already successfully working in Saudi Arabia. For example, at the last delegation we were joined by representatives from Neom, Esnad, Artcom, Riyad Bank and others. This allows us to network and get questions answered in an informal atmosphere
Conferences and events
More than 20 conferences will be held in Riyadh in October. Delegation participants can attend them before or after the main program. As a result, get the first contacts of partners/customers and be convinced of the high business activity in Saudi Arabia
We will visit a local tourist attraction - the old town of Diriyah. We'll walk around, take beautiful photos, visit museums and dine at great local restaurants. We will also be joined by secret guests
