Angel Rising

March 24th 2018

Angel Rising is an annual symposium organized by startAD and VentureSouq that provides education sessions on key topics related to Angel Investing to individuals from the region who have expressed an interest in investing in startups.

The development of a broad, sophisticated class of investors is a necessity in a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem, and can be a critical part of the desired solution for the MENA region. In order for a startup ecosystem to flourish, the investor base needs to mature and evolve in lock step with the entrepreneur base.
