The entrepreneurial landscape witnessed a landmark occasion with the culmination of the Techstars Riyadh Accelerator Startup Demo Day, according to an announcement.[1]

This event served as the grand finale of the Techstars Riyadh Accelerator program, a dynamic three-month initiative designed to bolster Saudi startups.

A dozen innovative companies spanning financial technology, e-commerce, and artificial intelligence took the stage on this day, delivering presentations encompassing their products, services, and future strategic endeavors to potential investors.

Beyond mentorship, the accelerator offered crucial resources, funding, workshops, and an invaluable platform for collaborative learning among peers.

First Month: Building Unrivaled Connections

The first month of the program, known as 'Mentor Madness,' saw participating startups engaging with approximately 100 experts from the Techstars network.

This phase enabled them to select three to five primary advisors, forming a virtual advisory board.

Advisors guided a spectrum of crucial areas, including product development, market fit, technology, fundraising, and company culture.

Second Month: Execution and Growth

Working closely with primary advisors, participants tackled challenges, achieved significant milestones, and focused on key performance indicators (KPIs).

This phase also facilitated concept tests if supported by institutional partners.

Third Month: Crafting a Compelling Narrative

The final month honed the startups' skills in crafting compelling narratives essential for fundraising and pitch presentations.

Participants refined their pitch narrative, designed pitch presentations, and prepared promotional materials tailored for potential investors.
