Sihatech is honored to represent Saudi Arabia and the regional MENA digital health sector at the upcoming Global Entrepreneurship Summit in The Hague, The Netherlands, from June 3rd to June 5th.
Initiated nearly a decade ago by the US Government, the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) is the preeminent annual gathering of entrepreneurs, innovators, investors, and thought leaders from around the world, providing a unique event that is a combination of an innovation marketplace and policy forum.
Since 2010, an estimated 20,000 emerging leaders having participated in GES, governments and the private sector have committed to providing over $1 billion in new capital to entrepreneurs worldwide.
Host cities have included: Dubai, UAE; Hyderabad, India; Istanbul, Turkey; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Marrakech, Morocco; Nairobi, Kenya; Silicon Valley; and Washington, DC.
This year’s Summit is about “The Future Now.” GES 2019, June 4-5 in The Hague, is the first GES held in the European Union. It focuses on five key investment areas: Agriculture/Food, Connectivity, Energy, Health, and Water.
Unique to this summit, institutional and angel investors, venture capital, family offices, and private equity join private and public sectors to bring innovation further, encouraging entrepreneurs from all over the globe to come with market-ready solutions.
During the two-day program, established entrepreneurs will showcase their scale-ups to a select group of decision makers, including funders, founders, experts and policymakers. GES 2019, “The Future Now,” will showcase the power of innovation to solve global problems, create economic prosperity and improve lives around the world, and plot the roadmap for “The Future Now.”
