Are you one to stare off into the distance and think ‘wow I wish I was at the Web Summit this year,’ or maybe you’re going through your feed wondering how cool the Web Summit is and how much you want to be a part of it. Well, there is no need for that now because a little part of the Web Summit is making its way to Bahrain! Yes, you read right, the Runway to Web Summit will make its MENA debut in Bahrain.
Now, if you thought that was cool, how about an all-expense paid trip to Lisbon for the real thing? Yes, you and your startup can win a trip to the Web Summit in Lisbon, but how you ask? All you have to do is apply to Runway to Web Summit pitching competition, pitch your startup to a panel of judges and the winner will get the opportunity to fly to Web Summit 2018.
Once you apply to the competition, your application will be reviewed by our friends at StartUp Bahrain – only the ten most promising ones will make the cut, so make sure your application oozes with pizazz. If you get selected, you’ll then pitch against nine other startups from all over the region for a place at Web Summit 2018.
So, what are you waiting for? Think you’ve got what it takes? Hurry up and apply before August 30 and may the odds be ever in your favor.
