Arab Startup Competition Nomination Form
The upcoming 12th edition of the Arab Weekend at Harvard, will take place on April 5th and 7th under the theme of (Re)Imagining Home. This is the largest pan-Arab conference outside of the region, typically attracting more than 1,300+ Arab students and professionals from all over North America.

A pillar event of the conference is the Startup Pitch Competition, during which 6 pre-selected startups pitch, receive feedback, and network with our 1,000+ attendees and our panel of judges. Our judges include high-profile figures in the entrepreneurship ecosystem, venture capitalists, angel investors, prominent entrepreneurs, and industry experts. We typically receive 100+ startup applicants with the top 3 winners receiving cash prizes – last year’s prizes totaled $25,000.

Last year’s jury at the Startup Pitch Competition were: Fadi Ghandour (Chairman & CEO, Wamda Capital), Khalid Al Rumaihi (Chief Executive, Bahrain EDB), Nichola Eliovits (Managing Partner, Olive Tree Capital), Christopher Schroeder (entrepreneur & startup author focused on MENA).
