While we expect high-profile visitors from government and industry to join us at each location, the most important participants will be Saudi-based entrepreneurs, the engines of constructive change and architects of a more diversified Saudi economy.
The roadshows are a milestone in Wa’ed's 10-year journey as one of the original architects of Saudi’s start-up sector. We are still the only no-collateral lender to Saudi entrepreneurs and the largest institutional venture capital investor in Saudi-based start-ups.
We’ve committed $100 million in loans and VC investment to Saudi-based entrepreneurs since Wa'ed's founding. And our impact is poised to grow. By 2023, we will double our annual deal-making pace, as we follow our impact-driven business strategy.
With partners and an aggressive outreach strategy that includes this Roadshow, Wa’ed is expanding its leadership as a catalyst for economic diversification and growth. In that sense, the Wa’ed Entrepreneurship Roadshow is not the end, but the beginning of a new journey.
Let’s bring about a more economically sustainable future for the Kingdom, one driven by innovation and the power of ideas and dreams.
Join us for the Wa’ed Entrepreneurship Roadshow.
