With direct feedback from many of you, we are postponing the TechWadi 2023 Annual Forum to 2024. We appreciate the flexibility and patience of our speakers & sponsors.

TechWadi's mission is to build meaningful connections and cultivate partnerships for entrepreneurs, corporations and investors across Silicon Valley and the Middle East and North Africa. Underlying our mission is a deep belief in hope for a better future and the opportunity to create that future together. Accordingly, part of this mission includes longstanding partnerships with the entrepreneurial and technology ecosystem in Gaza including Gaza SkyGeeks, YouthCode-Gaza, Manara and UNRWA-USA. The bombardment and humanitarian crisis has devastated these organizations on the ground, and so we urge you to support them and any other organizations championing entrepreneurship and technology.

We know our community continues to grieve the loss of all innocent Palestinian and Israeli lives and we wait with desperate angst as events continue to unfold in the region- we recognize that the Annual Forum would have had the benefit of bringing our community together when we need each other most, so we will be hosting other events in the coming weeks to bring the community together. Please stay tuned for details.

Hear & Learn from founders and operators of early stage startups to unicorns.​

Connect with VCs and investors as they share their insights on how they assess investment, and how to best position your business for a raise.​

Meet some of the top Silicon Valley startups and understand how they succeeded against all odds.
Every year, technology movers and shakers gather through the TechWadi Annual Forum to discuss recent developments and future opportunities for innovation.

The event brings together more than 300+ new and established entrepreneurs, innovators, investors, policy makers, and ecosystem stakeholders from MENA, Silicon Valley, and beyond.

Full Day: 9AM - 5PM Pacific Time
