Seed and early-stage venture capital firm Flat6Labs will host a corporate networking event in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, in partnership with its StartMashreq Program on November 28.
The event will provide corporates with the opportunity to discuss potential partnerships by introducing them to Flat6Labs’ KSA-based portfolio companies and StartMashreq Growth Track startups from Jordan, Lebanon, and Iraq.
StartMashreq, which was launched in March of this year, is a regional entrepreneurship program that will be implemented over two years in partnership with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and the government of the Netherlands. It targets underserved entrepreneurs in Jordan, Lebanon, and Iraq -- including women, refugees, minorities and internally displaced persons -- between the ages of 18 and 45. StartMashreq focuses largely on sectors like education, fintech, financial inclusion, healthcare tech, agriculture, environment, and ICT. 
Event registration is now open (here).
Earlier this month, Riyadh Valley Company, the investment arm of King Saud University, announced its investment in Flat6Labs Startup Seed Fund (SSF).
