    Endeavor Jordan Organizes Fourth Annual DealMakers Event 

    Providing a networking platform for ICT-sector entrepreneurs and investors




    Amman, October 2016 – Under its efforts to empower Jordanian entrepreneurs to unleash their potential, Endeavor Jordan is organizing DealMakers 2016, marking its fourth annual information and communications technology (ICT) investment matchmaking event. The two-day event, which will commence on Monday 7 November, 2016, at the Grand Hyatt Amman, will offer an ideal platform for ICT and ICT-enabled companies, angel investors and venture capital firms to engage, discuss investment opportunities and share industry experiences.


    Connecting top international, regional and local investors with some of the technology sector’s most promising entrepreneurs, DealMakers 2016 aims to elevate the conversation on how both investors and business owners can collectively maximize the investment and divestment potential of Arab start-ups and scale-ups. Offering a series of conversations and collective design exercises, the event will address business challenges and opportunities in an open dialogue, contributing to the design of a more efficient and dynamic deal-making ecosystem.


    Supported by Platinum Sponsor Arab Bank and Gold Sponsor Umniah, DealMakers 2016 will encompass a keynote talk led by Co-Founder and Managing Director of Careem, Mudassir Sheikha, who will share the story behind the company's success, followed by a panel featuring entrepreneurs who have successfully raised funding. The first day of the event will commence with a series of enlightening entrepreneur-focused workshops led by the Amsterdam-based THNK School for Creative Leadership.


    With a focus on engaging entrepreneurs with top local, regional and international investors, DealMakers 2016 will feature several one-on-one speed networking sessions, allowing entrepreneurs to receive live feedback on their products and services. In addition, angel investors and venture capital firms will be privy to an exclusive investor roundtable discussion, addressing the latest developments within the regional ICT and investment landscapes.


    “The annual DealMakers event allows Endeavor Jordan to support the wider entrepreneurship ecosystem in the Kingdom, providing us with a platform from which to help companies in the ICT sector connect with Endeavor’s international and regional network of investors,” said Rasha Manna, Managing Director of Endeavor Jordan. “This year, we strive to build upon the success of the three previous editions of DealMakers, continuing to put innovative entrepreneurs in touch with investors to explore investment opportunities.”
