The 6th edition of the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival (SEF) — set to take place on the 17th & 18th of December at the inspiring location of the Sharjah Research Technology and Innovation Park — will see more than 50 diverse discussions, covering visions and presentations from some of the leading authorities in global entrepreneurship.
The festival, organised annually by Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center (Sheraa), has been a highlight on the calendar for future changemakers, thought-leaders as well as investors looking to discover the next ‘Fortune 500’ company in the making.
Najla Al Midfa, CEO of Sheraa, said: “With over 130 speakers spearheading rich discussions on the latest trends and technologies, entrepreneurs and attendees of the two-day festival will have the opportunity to engage with and learn from industry leaders directly. Our speakers and sessions this year have been carefully curated to provide our community of changemakers the knowledge they need to realize their entrepreneurial dreams.”
With the vision to easily find your business niche, under the theme “Where We Belong”, SEF 2022 will have five dedicated stages for visitors to associate their passions, namely Impact Stage, Creative Stage, Tech Stage, Community Stage, and Wellness Stage. Exciting activities, workshops, networking and investment opportunities, and inspiring discussions are lined up to cater to all communities of entrepreneurs, creators and changemakers.
Mariam Bin Al Shaikh, Director of the Sharjah Business Women Council, which is a major partner of SEF 2022, said: “We aim to foster female entrepreneurs who have already become integral part of the larger entrepreneurship community within Sharjah and the wider UAE. We are looking forward to working with Sheraa by initiating dialogues and addressing barriers that are proving hindrance to people attaining their full potential. This is just a taste of what to expect from the festival this year, in its efforts to empower and elevate interest in the entrepreneurial landscape and create a sustainable pathway to success.”
