TechWadi was founded in 2006 by a group of Arab-American and Arab entrepreneurs as a way to connect Silicon Valley and the MENA region. In Silicon Valley, TechWadi brings together technology movers and shakers through conferences, networking events, workshops, and mentorship programs. In the MENA region, TechWadi works with leading regional and international organizations to empower high impact entrepreneurs and help build a sustainable infrastructure to help entrepreneurship thrive and succeed.
TechWadi’s ultimate goal is to help foster and grow MENA’s entrepreneurial tech ecosystem. TechWadi’s ‘Sprint Acceleration Program’ aims to provide opportunities to young entrepreneurs from the MENA region to receive mentorship and training in order to become more sustainable, gain mobility, and access global markets. TechWadi also hosts a webinar series where expert mentors deliver one-hour sessions online to its MENA audience.
