ArabNet 2010: A Middle East Tech Event for Middle East Techies

ArabNetWith the lack of good Internet related events in the region, ArabNet 2010 is a conference that’s not to be missed.

ArabNet 2010 will take place in Beirut on March 25 and 26, 2010.

Focusing on Arab Internet from an international perspective, the conference is organized by the International Business Alliance Group (IBAG) and supported by Endeavor Jordan, the Queen Rania Center for Entrepreneurship, the Syrian Young Entrepreneurs Association and YallaStartup!

ArabNet aims to bring together the Internet community to network and help launch the hottest startups from across the region. Top investors, Internet executives and leaders from Google, Yahoo!, Facebook, AdMob and Intel will adress subjects that are critical to the Arab Web Industry including: e-commerce, gaming, mobile, content, online advertising, social networking, new media, and start-up fundraising.

The conference features two pitch sessions: Ideathon & Startup Demo. This is the place to match talent with opportunity.

The Ideathon is looking for 10 select entrepreneurs to introduce their fresh startup ideas to eager investors in a rapid-fire pitch session. Similarly, the Startup Demo will select startups with innovative products to pitch and exhibit their companies for the duration of the conference.

ArabNet is currently accepting applications from entrepreneurs and startups from the region, with applications currently accepted on their website.
