Dubai, Your #uberPITCH Is Arriving Now

Uber and ArabNet teamed up to make life-changing moments available on-demand, in five cities across MENA.

Startup warriors, entrepreneurs  and dreamers – your big break is arriving now.

This weekend, we’re launching #UberPITCH, and anyone with 15 minutes and a good idea can submit an application and request a ride. On May 9th, from 11am – 3pm, regional startup heroes and Uber GMs will listen to your ideas in Dubai, Cairo, Beirut, Riyadh, and Amman.


Two startups will be sponsored by Uber Dubai to participate in the ArabNet Digital Showcase May 27-28th. Participants will have the opportunity to pitch for 3 minutes on stage, speak with 70 industry leaders in a closed meeting, and a booth for their startup.

Whether you spend your weekends building your app or brainstorming the next big thing — UberPITCH is your chance to get in front of some of the region’s most accomplished investors at the ArabNet Digital Showcase.
