The World Economic Forum is one of the most anticipated events of the year. This year, they are presenting the 100 most exciting startups in the Arab world, along with Bahrain Economic Development Board.

The 100 startups were selected amongst almost 400 applicants from 17 countries and a range of sectors, including energy, education, environment, finance, health and media.

Some of the ones who made the cut were Wahed (world’s first halal investment platform; UAE), MonoJo (biotech company making antibodies using camel milk; Jordan), Swvl (ride-hailing app; Egypt), Proximie (enabling surgeons to remotely contribute to procedures through AR; Lebanon) and Epilert (bracelet that alerts caregivers of epilepsy seizures in patients; Tunisia).

In addition to their presence at the World Economic Forum on the Middle East and North Africa, held at the Dead Sea in Jordan, entrepreneurs from the 100 selected startups will benefit from the tailored programme to discuss the future of their industries alongside government and industry leaders.
