ON A MISSION TO SAVE STARTUPS

We’re here on a mission to change the reality in the startups ecosystem in the MENA region where only a selected few get the guidance needed to succeed and the support to secure investment for their business.

Our model is making it in the hands of startups to:

  • Get the guidance from other successful entrepreneurs who’ve been in your place one day
  • Secure an investment for their business in that early stage

What is StartupX?

Our process is simple!

1. Evaluation

Your business gets evaluated by a committee composed of:

  • Successful entrepreneurs who have managed to raise 1M+ USD
  • Industry specific expertise
  • Marketing & Sales experts
  • Financial
  • Target Audience (where needed whether consumer, business, government)
